Steve & Angie,

I am so sorry for your loss, Uncle Tom will always be in my heart. It is so hard when you lose a parent, there are no words to comfort you. But always remember the joy and fun times you shared. He will forever be in your heart. Love you both,

I will always remember the smile Tom brought to your beautiful face, Charlette. You were both so dedicated to each other. Hold on to those precious memories that I like to think of as gifts from God to hold onto forever. Praying for you and your family and sending hugs.

Angie and Steve, I am so sorry for the loss of your Dad. We had great times growing up, and were fortunate enough to have a very close family. I had so much fun with Uncle Tommy. Probably the most important thing he taught me was to respect the ocean, and how to swim. We spent many summers in Ocean City on the beach. Those were the greatest days of my life. I always looked forward to summers and being in Ocean City with Aunt Alma and Uncle Tom. Our fondest memories will keep Uncle Tom alive in our hearts; he was truly a remarkable human, Father, and Uncle. I will love him forever. Love, Pam
