    Aunt Patty, Jeff and Curry family, I am saddened to read that Uncle Tom has passed away. He certainly lit up any room he entered and he will be missed by all who had the pleasure to know him. I hope we all find peace that his physical suffering has ended and he has been reunited with his family members that have passed before him especially his beloved daughter. RIP Uncle Tom and you will never be forgotten.
