Tom was the greatest step brother, my little baby Sister Cheryl was born in Leo. The this he did when he was in high school. But to me he was a hero who been in the army. And I remember he lost a lot of friends in the war as well. We will miss him. But now he is with dad and his mother in heaven. And we all will be there someday. In the arms of our father in heaven. Because god loves you all.
