I`m so sorry to hear about the loss of your Uncle, my sincere sympathy to you and your families.
Tommy & Lois were certainly among the best neighbors and friends we ever had. We have great memories of this wonderful couple and we were fortunate enought to have purchased Tommy`s parents home that we developed into the Whistle Stop Bed & Breakfast. We were hoping to spend a few days with Tommy this summer but I am sure he is happier being with Lois.A great gentleman that will be missed by all who were priveledge to have known him as we had since 1989.
