Shards 'n Snippets Spring 2014

On March 17th. 2014 Tile Heritage lost a tireless advocate, supporter, historian, writer and friend. Tom was a highly regarded volunteer in his community of Palo Alto but not everyone was aware of his affection for ‘tiles.’ He is survived by his wife Ellen, an equally supportive tile lover and advocate. Tom also has a son and daughter and four grandchildren. There is a very honoring obituary in the MountainView Voice. A memorial service will take place on April 18 at 11 a.m.at Lucie Stern Community Center Ballroom, 1305 Middlefield Road, Palo Alto.
