Dear Rose,
I just looked out the back porch window at a great number of cars at Hart's Funeral Home on Sunday afternoon and was curious as to who might have passed here locally. That is how I found the obit on Tom. I have such fond, fun memories of him!! So sorry for your loss, but he was blessed with 91 years, and you with 67 with him - not many are !!
Love,
Katie
