Tom was known for his unconditional love for his family and friends. He had a sweet soul who would had done anything for anyone. Tom was the jokester who enjoyed making others smile even up to his last hours he was cracking jokes. He gave all his strength the last day to sing his wife happy birthday and express how much he loved and cherish everyone. Even though he was fighting this battle he didn't let it take control , he fought hard and got up and kept going. Tom loved watching tv with his wife and sharing moments with her. He enjoyed taking car rides with his daughter Amy and singing songs in the car. He loved going to his brother's and sister' s house to play cards and fishing and camping during the summer. Best of all he loved spoiling his grandbabies , if others said no grandpa always said yes!
Even though Tom is gone physically, he is still here in spirit. He is all around us and reminding us that one day we will see him again. For us it will feel like a lifetime but for him it will be a blink of an eye when we all will be there with him to share the glory of heaven. Tom is in a better place where only joy, comfort, and happiness can be expressed. He is dancing in the skies with his daughter Cathy and being in the arms of all his loved one.
