Dad,
I will cherish the memories we have, especially the ones that we created over the last few months. As we often repeated to each other and together....one step at a time, one day at a time and never quit. It is that that got us both thru some tough days and this will continue to drive me forward. Luckily for me I frequently took pictures that documented your journey. I took pictures a couple hours before you passed not knowing that you would pass into heaven. May you finally Rest In Peace. The struggle was real but in the end you did it your way. I will love you always and forever! I will take care of Mom. You have no more worries! 😘❤️🙏🏻Kath

Rest in peace dear Uncle Thom. I have so many memories of you taking us to the drag races at Norwood Arena. Cookout at our house on the 4th of July before we all went to the Parade. You were such a funny man. Always with a joke to put everyone at ease. The best man at my parents wedding. My mom often tells the story of you walking with her in a snowstorm on their wedding day. My godfather. I remember everyone being so worried during the Blizzard of 78. You were one of those stuck on 95 during the storm. Days later, my mom cried when she looked out the window and saw you walking down the street. You will never be forgotten. My sincerest condolences to my Auntie Anne and my cousins, Dottie, Kathy and Carolyn. He was one of the best for sure.
