Uncle Tom was the best hands down! He had a big heart and amazing sense of humor. I was truly blessed for having him in my life. He was always very supportive of anything I did and came to see me across the US wherever I had moved on to. Before technology, he would map out directions for me on road trips and write them down as references. He is now in a place rejoicing with family and friends that went before him. I can imagine how wonderful that must be for him and them. I love you Uncle Tom and until we meet again ❤
