It is with a heavy heart that I share the news of the passing of Dr. Tom Caldwell and his daughter, Cathryn Caldwell, on October 20th.  Dr. Tom was “one in a million”.  A shining star in our midst that cannot be easily replaced.  Dr. Tom was a long-time member of BGS, serving as Curator for the past several years.

Dr. Tom will be missed by all.  Our thoughts and prayers are with his family during this difficult time.
