    Uncle Tom you will be greatly missed, you were always such a jokester, I remember when Dawn and I were little girls you gave us Monique’s doggie biscuits and told us they were cookies, which we didn’t get a chance to eat because you stopped us before eating them. Only one of the many, many cherished memories I remember. I love you, until we meet again
