We have been blessed as a family to have such a wonderful role model in our aunts Tom. This name is what all of her nieces and nephews have know to call her. Aunt Tom loved tenderly, and protected our hearts fiercely. When we met a friend, Tom treated them with thoughtfulness and caring just the same. Aunt Tom made us all feel like we were the only one, yet we knew her love for all, God bless our best friend Aunte Tom.
