To a second dad when I was growing up. I am so sorry to hear of this and apologize that I wasn't at the service. My thoughts to Dixie, Tom, and Carla. Your dad was one of a kind and a person that always had a smile on his face and something up his sleeve. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone through this time.

Dixie & family,
I so wished I were able to attend Tom's Memorial but due to shoulder surgery I am laid up.
What can I say except I'm so sorry. Knowing you two from the time we all started our married life together and then Loved playing cards and many games with you. The guys went to work on 2nd shift and we waited for them to return so we could play cards, visit and most of all laugh. God Bless All!
