My beloved big brother, Tomas. The epitome of strength and courage yet always a gentle, caring and loving man. I shall miss him dearly! My world has become poorer with such a tremendous loss, but feel lifted with joy to see his spirit live on through his children and the memories of all the times I watched him as he treated each person with consideration, patience and love. He was very inspirational to me and will always be in my memories.

Where to begin? My memories of Uncle Tom are that of a good Christian Man, Father and Uncle! He always did his best to keep in touch with my father who was his younger brother Othon Molina who has also since passed on Dece 1st 2007 and my mother Antonia Molina of whom I’m blessed to still have around . Uncle Tom had a passion for sharing the Lord’s Prayers and blessings to all his friends and family! Because of of his efforts to bond his family together, I’m very grateful to have the opportunity to continue with getting to know his adult children And to do my best to keep in touch moving forward...
With many warm thoughts of his extended family always! 🌸❤️
Love, Cousin Victoria’ Molina Caropreso (Vicky) Buckeye AZ
