Thomas stepped in as my father when my dad passed away. He never made me feel like a burden and treated me like one of his own. He was the most loyal, loving, generous man. I carry so many lessons he taught me and I am so grateful he and I reconnected last year. I wish I could have gotten that dinner we discussed and just one more big hug. Love you and thank you for all you gave me, Uncle Thomas.
