Reflecting back on the lives of Tommy and Rose, we shared many happy times and I know Tommy had a full and loving life. I'm grateful to have been related to him. Having recently lost my brother, Henry Warnock it gives me peace knowing they are together in heaven telling tall tales and singing Danny Boy. Much love, June (Warnock) Brink.
