    I once bid on an auction item which Tom had donated to a local charity. It was a course of boxing lessons to be taught in his gym up on Biscayne Blvd. When it turned out that I was the high bidder, he asked me when I would like to show up at the Gym. I said "The lessons are not for me; they are for my wife Leslie Lott". He looked at me and with complete sincerity and seriousness said, "You know, in her weight class she just might be unbeatable". That little exchange, in a strange way, always endeared me to Tom Tew.
