Tmmar

I wanted to let you know that Tom Marchitto Tmmar had an accident this weekend. He was cleaning debris off the roof of his Moho and fell off. I just talked to him and he is in good spirits as usual. He is in the hospital in Orlando and is doing ok. His injuries are painful and will take time to heal. Please keep Tom and Margaret in you thoughts and prayers.

Man, that's one of my biggest fears when I'm on the roof. Does he need anything? I'm in Tampa, so not too far away.

He is lucky he didn't land on his head. I'm so glad he will heal. Prayers sent.

I'm close also and he is good right now. Tom is still in the hospital hoping to be released today or tomorrow.

I am OLD and fat so falling is never good. I would not want to fall 2 FT...much less 10 or more.
Praying for a speedy recovery.

From someone who fell 47 feet, I can assure you it's the sudden stop that hurts.
Hoping for a speedy recovery Tom. Our prayers are with you.

Spoke to Tom on Monday. Mood was upbeat, Biggest complaint was that judges only scored his dive a 9.5. Thought he deserved better. We are in Orlando, close by. Offering any help needed. Always nice to know FROG family is everywhere.
