To all of the Blake family,
I'm saddened to hear of Uncle Tom's death.
I have many fond memories of visiting with all of you and your father in Hobart. I always thought of Uncle Tom as a man's man and can still hear his rich deep voice in my mind.
I will miss him. He always had such a presence.
With Love,
Jim Pickford (Tracey, Erin, and Katie)
