Uncle Tom
Wanted to thank you for the retelling of the story of about when you and your lieutenant were pinned down for and entire night by enemy fire and the only place to take cover was lying in an enemy (slit trench). You said that upon returning to your unit they just cut you uniform off you because no one could stand the odor. My son and I were in awe of you stories of being in battle when we visited you in March. I'm so glad we could make the trip to visit with you and have out last pizza together.

A Special Thank-You to Aunt Kathy's Family and all of UncleTom's
Friends and Neighbors who did so much to make his years since
Aunt Kathy's passing more enjoyable and happy. He spoke often
of the good food, visits and outings with all of you. Uncle Tom was richly blessed to have all of you in his life. I know he loved all of you dearly. I thank God for everything that all of you did for my Uncle Tom since all of his family was in Tennessee and Maryland. I pray that God will continually Bless all of you for the love, care, and concern you showed to him. I wish that I could have been there to help take care of him since the stroke, but I didn't know about it and learned of his death from my niece who saw it on facebook.

Again, GOD BLESS YOU & THANK-YOU!

Thomas and Kathy was my client at H & R Block. After my stroke I resigned from H & R Block. We have always keep in touch. I would come over and we have pizza and laugh. Those were the good day. I moved out of Ohio to New York to spend time with the grandbaby. May time lessen your pain as memories gently turn tears to smiles. Love, Denise Kelly

Uncle Tom has always held a special place in my heart. He was a good man, a true gentleman, and a gentle soul. He was my Mother’s little brother, and she loved him dearly. We all did. I will miss him and treasure his memory.
