It's difficult to put into words all my oldest brother Tom has meant to me and done for me. He was the first born and undeniable star of our very large family growing up and, as it turns out, all our lives. He was not just thoughtful and kind to his little brother Danny, but to nearly anyone he would encounter. He was a longtime head basketball coach at the University of Vermont. and on Monday night, the school paid him back by naming the basketball court after him.
