Tom Rogers was a man rightly called a Treasure. He lived life fully with great gusto. When I encountered Tom at Filoli, with or without guests on a tour, I asked him for his latest discovery or story. He would think a moment and out came a historical finding about a Filoli object or a funny (but always kind) story of a human encounter that had touched his funny bone. All who knew Tom were blessed to know him.
