    Rose,

    Tom was one of the most honorable and considerate men I've ever met. He never forgot my grand children and always asked about them. I believe the years spent with Tom were ones that will be forever cherished. My prayers are with him as he ascends to his final resting place with the Lord and with you as you continue on. Love Elaine

  13. He only takes the best
    God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be. So he put his arms around you and whispered "es;Come to Me"es;. With tearful eyes we watched you and saw you pass away. Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands to rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us. He only takes the best
    I miss you Paw Paw dearly. Wish you here! I love you always and forever!!
