We loved Tom and Velma like family. We enjoyed so many wonderful years together both here and in Florida. Tom took us to see our very first manatee. The entire family worked hard for Joel every time he ran for state representative. I’m certain they are so happy to be reunited. We love you, Marty, Tim abs Myra.
