DearTommy, we miss you so much. You were such a great friend. I worked with you at the Golden Valley plant making air cleaners. You and I were the only ones on second shift. When my car wouldn't start one freezing winter night, you had me sit in your car made me a strong drink, while you tried to fix it, we had to let it sit at the plant. You then drove me to meet Stan. That was some night. You were one great friend. I appreciated all you did for us and our kids. They loved you as Santa. It...

I have many special memories of Uncle Tommy.

My sisters and I were always invited to punch him as hard as we could in the stomach. His stomach, even though protruding, was hard as a rock. So we would punch him until we wore ourselves out or sprained our wrist. Every once in a while, you could almost tell that he felt that one, but he would never let on.

He was always trying to teach us to box, but usually so he could show off his form.

In the evening on...

Tommy's memorial will be held on January 12th at 12:00. Parkway United Methodist Church. 3120 Washburn Ave Robbinsdale MN 612 522-2982. Reception to follow at The Lodge Restaurant also in Robbinsdale just down the street 4080 W Broadway Ave. If anyone attended his wife Colleens memorial all is happening in the same places.

Tom was a very special person and a terrific Santa Claus.

RIP Uncle Tommy
