Saddened at the loss of Uncle Tom whom I will always remember with the greatest affection. He was my "smart uncle" who talked about intelligent, sophisticated things with me. I always looked forward to seeing him and Aunt Nita and David on their visits to New Orleans.

When I was a sophomore at LSU Uncle Tom and Aunt Nita were staying on the LSU campus for a continuing education seminar of some sort - so like them. I wish I could remember their course topic. I can't. But they took the time and effort to call me at my fraternity house to invite me out for dinner. We went to Mike's on the Levee in downtown Baton Rouge.

I have so many memories of Uncle Tom, especially on my Dad's boat when he kept it in Madisonville. I remember being on Dad's boat going up the Tchefuncte River and Uncle Tom pointing out an old steam powered crane decaying on the shore.

I remember his love for photography. He took many fabulous photos at my sister's wedding in New Orleans in 1976.

My Dad loved him so much. I've spent the day thinking about them both.
