    Another angel got his wings! He will be sorely missed and this breaks my heart, but I know that he is in a better place. Uncle Tom was such a sweet heart and I hope that you can find some comfort in knowing that he is resting in the arms of the Lord.

    Thank you Dad for being the most amazing father a son could ask for. I love you so very much Dad! I will honor you the rest of my days here on this earth as you have given me the greatest gift, the roadmap of how to live a Christian life through our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Until we meet again Pops! Love, your adoring son. Godspeed my sweet Father.
