I just wanted you to know that no matter what I love you and am so lucky to have had you in my life for the short amount of time. I learned a lot from you and will forever be grateful. Rest in Peace Tom
Love your Daughter In Law
My Dad was an outstanding person. Always willing to give a hand. I remember a particular instance when we were growing up. We came across a young woman - apparently on drugs and alone. My father took her into the fast food restaurant nearby, got her some coffee and made sure someone called the ambulance to ensure she would be taken care of. We were in a busy area, everyone else seemed to ignore the woman or just in general not want to deal with her. I do think that my dad was her guardian angel on that day. My Dad was one to ensure that people were taken care of. Always willing to help, give a kind or encouraging word. I have so many thing I still need to discuss with him. I miss him everyday.
The ROG's (Retired Old Grumps) was the informal group who
would get together on occasion for lunch. We all worked together in
telecommunications in the past and enjoyed getting together several times a year.
"So sorry about your dad. I remember Uncle Tom always smiling. We are thinking of all of you."
I always wish we saw each other more often, but especially now I'm *hating* the distance. I wish I could be there with you guys. Your dad was wonderful - always so kind and happy. We miss you and are thinking of you all. and hugs.
