My love is being sent to you all. Uncle Tom always had a special place in my heart evev though sometimes he could be scary. I found out he was a complete teddy bear the day I and Gina were messing around in the bedroom and I broke his spanish guitar. I was terrified, how am I going to replace it? He never said a peep about it! I have been said that I broke it all these years. He's never said a word.
I Love you Uncle Tom! May God bless you and take you to your Love Aunt Sharon.
Tell my loved ones I love them and miss them.
Love You All

My Uncle Tommy what a guy ! Him and Aunt Sharon would take me every where ice cream bowling alley get him a haircut and he always held my hand him and my Aunt called me Chery Ann and made me feel special ! I think he forgave me for stepping on his shiny dress shoes cause he gave a big hug! He was quite the family man and I admire him for that! Even though we didn't see each other a lot when the family did get together we had goid times!My heartfelt love and sympathy is with my cousins Gina Jason and Mike and their families! Love You All Chery Ann!
