Hey Tom,
I just got finished listening to your CD of
"Tools", with tears filling my eyes, my hands folded, and my mind going back over my childhood years.  I wanted to say thank you for sharing this with me, it has touched my life, so in a sense, your father has touched my life.

Thomas Occhipinti's audiobook Tools will make you laugh, sigh, and cry. With heartfelt candor and sincerity, Thomas shares stories about his father, the son of Sicilian immigrants, who taught him many of life's valuable lessons. Listening to Tools brought me back to times in my own life when I faced similar experiences Thomas faced and reminded me how all it took were the words of a loved one to comfort me and point me in the right direction. I loved Tools and know you will too.
