    Dear Tommy:
    I was in junior high in Albuq. when you were at Highland High. It’s been fun watching you all these years. Hometown hero goes all the way to the Hall of Fame, wow! Now, in my retirement, I am also painting. Wanted to all my life, but, very busy on the job until 2006. Now, here in Mesquite, NV I have time to express myself in many mediums. I have been able to paint some pictures for relatives and friends, and those have been well received. I hope your life continues to be very rewarding and thanks for all the great times watching you achieve the ultimate in football. Good luck and God bless!
