  • Tom, you were my brother from age nine. You loved and supported me through my childhood, teenage years, married life, and widowed life. So many memories are flooding my head. You were wonderful to my parents, my son, my grandchildren and especially my sister. You were the glue that held our family together in hard times. You always put up with Phyllis and my antics and never said a word, except the tatoo. That’s the only time I remember you saying no to her. I am so blessed to have had you in my life and am especially grateful for having lived with you for a year, to grieve my sister’s passing together. Kiss all my angels for me and until we meet again, I love you.
