Uncle Tom was not just a Great husband and father, he was a wonderful man. His inspiration and charity to me and my family will be never forgotten. I learned a lot on how to become a man from Uncle Tom. When I first joined the military and told uncle Tom that I was going to be an electrician, he told me to be safe and gave me a quote that I've used almost every day. The quote was There is no dumb old electricians, Safety First. Although I have stumbled a few times I have always remembered what he told me. Uncle Tom will be greatly missed. Love your nephew Louie.
