Uncle Tom was who I was named after. One of my earliest memories of Tom was a day in my grandparents home where he first introduced his beautiful bride to be Lynn.
Tom had that unique ability to connect with people wherever he was, and make the encounter a joyful and memorable experience!
The last time I shared a meal with Tom was at the Egg and I Restaurant in Estes Park. He knew everyone in the place, and their faces all shone a little brighter when they saw him!
Thanks my dear Uncle Tom... I will see you again in heaven! TBTG!
