Tommy has always been a special cousin. He was the same age as my brother. I enjoyed watching them play together. By now I hope Bobby, Thomas, Carroll, my parents and especially Uncle Stanton and Aunt Minnie have welcomed Tommy and they are enjoying the peace and fellowship that we all hope to have someday.
My love to Linda, Mary Evelyn, Marvin, Brenda, Karen, and Louise, all the cousins, and friends who loved Tommy. Take good care of yourselves and be safe. Be patient with yourself as you grieve. Take each day one day at a time.
All of you have a special place in my heart.
