As an aficionado of music curating, Tom had many sagas of styles of music. In the last few years of his life, he began assembling this playlist. Originally for the wedding of his son and soon-to-be daughter-in-law's cocktail hour party, it has grown and evolved through the years to include songs that brought him joy, sorrow, and every emotion in between. He explained to us that many of the songs connect to people and times to his life.

Though we'll never be certain exactly what song goes with each person or memory, we all hope you find your connection with a song in this playlist.
