Remembering the nicest person I’ve ever known

Six years ago this week just about the nicest person I’ve ever known passed away after a long battle with esophageal cancer. I used to call Tom Woody the Times-News unpaid intern for life because he spent so much time in our newsroom helping his longtime spouse, newspaper administrator and columnist Frances Woody with any number of odd jobs. They remain among the most devoted and loving couples I know of. Six years ago today I attended a funeral for Tom. On the day he passed away I wrote the column below that I only have as an image due to the changeover in the Times-News internet archiving. I hope most can read it. I think it can be magnified by most readers. My best to Frances. I know still misses Tom terribly.
