  5. I will miss my little buddy every day for the rest of my life.. Tom got me in trouble all the time.. He would come and see me while I was at work . Sometimes he bought rocks and gravel and other times he would bring new customers for me. We would always sit in the sun and laugh and giggle sometimes for a good hour.. we would talk about the munch kins . That would be a laughing fest for a good 20 minutes.. I always got so behind in my work . I would give anything to have just one more giggle with my buddy.. I promise you Tom that I will keep an eye on Dar and keep her fed and Mark and I will do what we can to keep a smile on her face.. I’m so jealous that the pearly gates have you up there giggling and laughing like we used to do.. the world will never be the same without you in it my friend. Keep a spot for me so we can tell story’s again.. love Angie and Mark . rest in peace my friend.

  6. So sorry for your loss Aunt Darlene, Kim, Marni and Will. Uncle Tom was a great man, so much fun and had a huge heart. Hope that all your memories and love for Tom will carry you through this difficult time. Wish we could be there with you all.
    Love Shauna, Ron and Quinn
