To Cheryl & all Tom's family and friends.
Tom will always have a special place in my heart, he was about the first person I got to know after I moved to Manitowaning. I spent many hours over the years exchanging back and forth banter with Tom over coffee at the coffee shop. Tom had a smile that lite his whole face and it always brightened my day. The tears I have shed have been selfish tears because I will miss Tom, but I cannot mourn his passing because I believe he is in a far better place. Tom....don't shut heaven's gates when you get there, I need to be able to get in when my turn comes. Hugs my friend, until we meet again !

Although I have not seen Uncle Tom in many years, he is not someone easily forgotten. His smile, laughter and kind heart will be greatly missed by all those that knew him. I had always hoped to make it back to the island but I waited too long.

Love you Uncle Tom
