1995 CONFERENCE PAPER

Tom didn’t merely say “I love my wife.” Through his voice, he opened a window into his soul and conveyed his deep sense of gratitude, reverence and joy in their union. We responded because Tom touched in us a yearning we all have to be known by another and loved for who we are.
