Uncle Tom was someone who was always present in my life. His spirit was unmatched and selflessness unwavering. From a young age I was always going to his house to spend time with him while my mom cleaned his house. I then got older and began helping clean myself and would cut the grass for him and do other odd jobs. He taught me how to operate a riding lawn mower. He had a pretty big backyard that backed up to a golf course so a riding lawn mower was a must. Afternoons spent at his house would result in lunch-usually at Ted's Hot Dogs. He also bought me my first car when I was a senior in high school. I do not have that car any longer but I will forever cherish how much he gave for not only me but my sister as well. Uncle Tom taught me a lot, how to cross-country ski, how to golf. He bought me my first 'cell phone' which was really just a reloadable Go Phone. We would head to Radio Shack every few weeks to put more money on it. He was such a wonderful person. I unfortunately did not see him recently but I will keep with me the pleasant memories I have. I am honored to have spent the time with him I did. I know he is at peace and no longer suffering. He lived a full, full life. <3 I love you Uncle Tom.
