    Ginger, so sorry for your loss. Your father was my age. Remember, as we get older so does everyone around us. Keep a good loving relationship with them and you will have no regrets in life when they are no longer with us. God bless you and your family from ours.

    Cheryl & family. As you know, we were unable to make the service. I understand it was a Wonderful service. We will miss Tom more than you know. As young kids, we all grew up together. Boy do I have so many funny stories about our child hood days. Tom (Tommy) was the youngest of the four of us. One of these days, we will be together and I will tell you some funny stories. God Bless all of you and may you find comfort. He is in Gods hands now. Hug to all of you. Cousin Donna
