This blog is offered as a forum to discuss thoughts and memories of my son, Tom Marton. The blog was initially designed to include information of special interest to my grandchildren — for example, Tom’s early interest in computers and video games. Over the months, the blog has expanded to include other interesting stories, such as accounts of family ancestors — some who knew Tom and others who died before Tom arrived on the scene. Tom’s children, my grandchildren, are still a central part of the intended audience for this blog. At the same time, there were many people in Tom’s life who knew and loved him, who miss him, and who remember his life with affection and gratitude.
Tom lived a short but blessed life; he was well-loved by friends and family alike. This blog is offered for all who knew him whether as a son or father, or as grandson, great-grandson, nephew, cousin, husband, uncle, colleague, or simply as a dear friend. He is deeply missed.
