Tom, you were my big, protective brother that I followed around on my first days of school, even waiting outside the boys' restroom for you. When we couldn't find a tree to eat our lunch under, we would bring it home and tell Mother that the shade trees were all taken.

I'm remembering all the nice visits that Rich and I have had with you, Ellen, Elaine and David over the years, and sometimes going back together to Newport to find familiar places of our childhood.

With loving memories forever,. Your sister, A. Glynn (Rich).

Although we were cousins, you were always more like a brother to me, as I think of the many childhood, (as well as through the 'teens) experiences, we shared, while still around to enjoy each other, in the "memory manufacturing" years, like the "cow milking/cat feeding", the numerous 6 tons of coal, we hauled on the old 1/1/2 ton Chevrolet Truck, across the old Cumberland Gap highway from the Premier Mines & "unloaded" all of it into, .narrow/small, "Coal Bins") , (before we were old enough to get a drivers license), I seem to remember also "exercising" our "young men" muscles in the Spring, too, while "cleaning out " the "cow hotel" (aka barn). The memory of the old '32" Chevrolet, with the wooden "floor boards" on fire, when you rigged it to run on kerosene. Our years of, taking advantage of your expertise in tuning some "fantastic running" race cars, and many more shared experiences. that loved brothers, do.

May GOD be with you, and thanks for being there, with me for these many years.
Bill (and Peggy)
