Talked to Tom Shanley's wife, JoLynn. It is with heavy heart that she told me Tom passed away November 6th in the evening. She & Tom's son Ed had visited that day and early evening at the hospital. When they got home, about an hour later, they received a call telling them he had passed. Tom saw the people he wanted to see and then let go.
JoLynn said to be sure to tell Leroy Hunt that Tom had read his letter, and probably others also.
He has been cremated on his orders! He didn't want to give any money away on a box. God bless Tom - in command until the end.
JoLynn will be at the Colorado address until Thanksgiving if anyone wants to send a card.
