Uncle Tom was the sweetest soul. He was always kind to everyone. He was always laughing and made everyone around him happy. I'm going to miss you Uncle Tom. Say hey to momma for me, love you, Leslie

May you find comfort in knowing that you are not alone, you are surrounded by those who care for you. Peace comes from knowing that Tom has been reunited with Alice and his siblings and victoriously overwhelmed by the beauty of heaven. He was a sweet, sweet man who never met a stranger, always had a story to tell and was a loving grandfather to Emily and Lindsey.
Love to all,
Steve, Dawn, Sammie, and Abby
