I was so sorry to read in the paper about Toms Death. He was a part of our family for 13 yrs. I was in touch with Tom after his illness started.
He had heard about Bob and was very sorry, they were buddies for a long time.
I hope now he is with God and I am sure he is.
Thanks Tom for the years of Family fun and many holidays we all spent together.
