Hi Shannen,
Less than a year ago I talked to a Tom Doherty that I had lived close to when we were in junior high. He asked me if I had heard of Shannen Doherty and I, of course, replied positively. I had gotten in touch with him through an Alumnus Directory that had been published by our high school.
About June or July of last year, I got a call from him and we talked for a while about old times - apples from the trees on his Mom and uncle's property, fishing, etc and that was when he said he was sorry for taking so long to reply to an email because he has vision problems.
Now for my question - Did your dad grow up on N Pleasant Ave in Ridgewood, New Jersey? I am sorry I can't remember the number but I can tell you that it was a number like 317 or something like that with the last number definitely an odd number.

Would you please let me know one way or another because I noticed that you lost your dad back in November? I read that he was 66; I am 67 so it is very coincidental that the ages are so close. To lose a dad is a horrible and heart-breaking incident. To lose a friend you haven't seen in years but thought there was a possibility of seeing once more pretty much sucks also.
I thank you for taking the time to read this and also thank you in advance for the reply.
Perhaps you would like to hear some of the good times we shared.
Thanks again!
Bob Edwards (then address - 310 N Pleasant)

That would be really awesome if Shannen's dad had grown up in NJ...certainly and interesting story and maybe once you get all the information together, we could hear some of the story!

Thank you very much. This is mixed feelings about whether or not it is the same Tom Doherty.

There would be a lot to tell. Tom and I were friends for many years.

Can't remember her name, but Tom had a beautiful Golden Retriever who was so sweet. She was always with us when we were in Tom's yard.

Her dad's full name is John Thomas Doherty. Did the one you know have that exact name?

I believe so. It was just that for some reason, he didn't like to be called John and preferred Tom.
