Goodbye Tom! Thanks a Million!

This is our landlord, Tom. Ok, WAS our landlord. Much to our dismay, he sold the building and retired. Tom was the reason that we chose the office space and warehouse where Simon Says Stamp is physically located. It's right down the street from the Columbus, Ohio landmark Polaris Mall, so the real estate is prime (more expensive than if it were further out of city limits). When looking for a place for Simon's business to live, we knew this was the place for us after meeting Tom even with the extra cost. From fixing the bathroom sinks to physically tearing down walls and installing outdoor lights for us, Tom was always volunteering to do projects for Simon's gals. He always shared a smile and a kind word. It's no surprise, one day he pulled into the parking lot with his truck filled with children's toys. He said his grandkids had outgrown the toys and was hoping some of our Simon gals' kids could put them to use. (There are a LOT of Simon gals' kids: 11 and counting!) Always thoughtful, cheerful, and helpful - not to mention an especially handsome 80 "ish" man, Tom will be MISSED! Thanks for all you have done Tom, and enjoy your retirement!
