    When Tom was young, once, Mom yelled out ‘Thomas George!” Upset … Tom said: “My name ain’t Thomas. It’s Tommy.” I guess that stuck. Because his co-workers still called him Tommy.

    Art from work went to view Tom in the casket. He came over and said: “I was just checking … Tommy always said he wouldn’t be caught dead in a suit.” Since we couldn’t find a suit among his belongings, Tom was buried in one of his nice black shirts.

    Art said Tom had told him he started working at Mid-States at age 16 for two summers. When he became 18, he went to work there full time. So he was there 34 years when he passed at age 50.

    I will also miss you alot. I have been sitting and remembering all the times as a child as well. All the holiday dinners, and times we would be together playing games and doing what ever kids did best. The parades Jefferson had when we were in school, to tricker treating together. As well as some of the while sleep overs with Patricia (or should I say when we would scheme to get you boys in trouble-and we ended up getting in trouble a couple of times). One time I really remember was when your mom, dad and Allen went to Arizonia and came back early. We all hurried to clean the house on 28th street before they got there. SO no one got in trouble. I so will miss how you alway had a way to explain things when I had troubles understanding something growing up. That caring smile and comforting words of “It will be ok” to the girls (Tracy and LeAnna Jo when you would see them.
    Remember to chear on the Cubs and your Bears and have a great time with your dad. Tell everyone we love them. Tell My mom we love her and that we hope she is winning big at Bingo there. Maybe you can take in a game or two with her. Give her and your dad and all our other loved ones kisses from us. Rest in Peace and have a safe journy.

    Tom was a die-hard Cubbie fan. Nobody else supported this notion.

    Tom had a weak heart. But he used it a lot. Tom had weak eyes. But he kept a close watch.

    You are going to be missed terribly by so many people. I have so many memories of when we were kids that I will always cherish. I used to love coming to your house and playing Spoons, Parcheesi, and other games with all of us at the table. Those are some of my favorite memories as a kid. Oh, and the family holiday dinners, who could forget those? The sleepovers with Patricia when we wouldn’t go to sleep and you would get pissed that we were too loud, I’m sorry. You have to admit it WAS funny when you look back on it. Do you remember fighting over who got to sit in the rear facing seat of your parents station wagon? Now, THAT was funny! I hope you get to watch PLENTY of movies in heaven and make sure you catch some baseball games with you dad. Maybe play some bingo with my mom too okay? I miss and love ALL of you. Have a peaceful journey.
