Alex and Bill,
But what also struck me as I remembered Tom, was the generosity of the community at spin. Alex, I know he usually attended your classes, and the attention and love and respect given by you, set a wonderful tone for the class. Jody, most often, and Carri and many others helped get Tom set up and comfortable and prepared for the class and sometimes helped during the class. It created a camaraderie that I daresay you don't find anywhere else. I watch as people help welcome new spinners, and exchange friendly gestures. I see how hard the instructors work at getting to know people's names. Obviously, anyone can ride a stationary bike but no one can lead a group to become a community like you and your staff. You bring good people together.
So, this is just in remembrance of Tom and in gratitude that you all make a difference in a place like Wellesley and the other towns nearby. Please keep up the good work. No one does it better.
