    Thankyou Uncle Tom for all the wonderful memories and all the love you shared. You were never too busy to play Atari games or share your popcorn down in the den. I remember smashing pop cans in the garage with you and you taught me that was the best way to get out the frustrations… and to sneak a few Reisen candies before dinner. We love you and will never forgot your smile.
