Uncle Tom will be missed. I loved going to his farm in West Virginia when I was a child. Visiting the family was always a joy! you never knew what pet animals they would have on this visit. He was always so relaxed and happy when we saw him on the farm. He showed me that life was to be enjoyed no matter how hard you had to work for it. One of the hardest working and loving man you will ever meet. Now go rest Uncle Tom!
