    I hope K-1 is OK. Tom was a great photographer and a better person. the more time I spent with him, the better a person he made me. Your words were dead on.

    Long live his memory.

    Tom genuinely enjoyed and befriended many of the people he came into contact with through his work. He was a great, perhaps even the greatest, guy to sit down with for a drink (Grey Goose martini, three olives, extra dry, extra cold) at the end of a long day of what we call "work." He was smart, loved to talk and was highly opinionated. In agreement or argument, he was pure fun.

    Above my desk is the picture he took for the September 11, 2001 memorial poster. The World Trade Centers were still standing and Tom Newby was still very much alive.

    The world has changed since then. It isn't a bad place, in fact it can be quite wonderful. But it is ... diminished. As a nation, we shared a common loss on Sept. 11, 2001. As a family of high-performance boaters, we shared a common loss on Sept. 11, 2007. The two are not comparable. Yet both are tragic.

    Wherever Tom is, whatever you believe about the hereafter, I can promise you this: Tom's Grey Goose martini is ice cold.
