Aunt Carol, Brad and family, Sending much love and prayers during this difficult time. Uncle Tom was one fun Uncle. When we were little he would turn up at our house with the best surprises for Rick and I...like a pet rabbit and huge stuffed animals. I will always remember him as smiling and full of fun!
