I see so many memories for the family in the pictures. So glad that he had such a special 90th birthday with immediate family, extended family, and miltary present. He looks so happy in that photo. My sincerest condolences.

When I was a little girl, Aunt Jane and Uncle Thomas would come to Tennessee for visits. Uncle Thomas would always bring me a half dollar and I thought I was rich. I know I would always sit on his l as p when he was here. I love this man so much even though I didn't get to see him often. The last time I saw him was in May 2016. Mom wanted to come visit him before she passed. I really enjoyed the visit.
