My dear sweet friend your smile and laughter will be forever remembered and missed. It was always a joy when you stopped by the antique shop and Flea Market. Our common interests gave us a connection as if we had known each other for years. Finding out you gained your angel wings broke my heart knowing I wouldn’t be seeing your smiling face, going to lunch or Webster hunting Antiques. Your homecoming had to have been amazing seeing your loved ones you had lost and always spoke so loving about. I’m so sorry Tom for your loss. Her stories of your courtship and how much she loved you were always in our conversations. Till we meet again my dear sweet friend.
