My favorite memory of Tom, was the one where he stepped in and was there for me and my brother and also my mom for so many years. I love Tom so much and felt he was so loyal to the 3 of us. He thought of us as his kids and also our kids as grandkids and we felt the same for him no matter what circumstance. Him and my mom were so hard for me to understand at times, and although I wanted them to be a couple, they had something much more unique. They were friends and best of friends, they were each other's person, they could be mad and then laugh within seconds and they were also one another's love of their life. They hadn't shared a house or been a couple for years, and was able to still develop so much. I thanked him recently and I'm so glad I did, some don't view it that way or even want to see that he truly felt that way. I do and my mom and brother do and even more my kids do. I vision him driving his red truck and pulling in and always his smile as he carried his sweet tea jug around. I vision my kids face and them running out to him yelling papap and also even better his face from the love he felt from them and us. I will always remember the things he did, when he didn't have to and I will also remember how it made him feel to be able to have us in his life. I will miss him so much and will always remind my kids of the only papa they had. We love you, thank you will never be enough.
