Sorry to see the passing of Tom Sherman of Frenchtown. Tom was my family’s(Paul and Ruth Lewis) milkman back in the early 60s. On days when he collected payment , he and my mom would have a friendly chat. He was very nice and a very handsome man. Coincidentally, he ended up in Ormond Beach, Fl; a lovely little beach town that I’m familiar with. Condolences to his family
