Dr. Moore had a “coffee chat” at Starbucks in Gastonia with Judge Jessie Caldwell. “Our friendship goes all the way back to 1967. Man, did we have much to share!”

Dr. Moore explained, “I just decided to explore my past by having an extended conversation. He and I had never shared much about our Gastonia connections…. For some reason, Gastonia is on my mind.”

Judge Caldwell, a lawyer since 1973 and elected to the Superior Court bench in 1993, wrote, “What a WONDERFUL time we had!!!…. Thomas is one of the most talented people I know – in SO MANY areas!!!”
