    To the family of Tom Pond. I’am very sorry for your loss Tom was a great knowledgeable man when it came to trucks and equipment. I got to meet him through C.E.M.A and fleet manager meetings sat at tables with him for many years. I have been the treasurer forC.E.M.A for a while and I have to say Tom was one of my top 5 members that would have his dues ready for the first meeting of the year! Tom will always be remembered and missed at our monthly meetings ! May time heal your hearts for his loss but his memories of good times carry you through these hard times . May he rest in peace Skip PotterC.E.M.A member
