Charlene and family,

So sorry for your loss. When I think of cousin Tommy, I think of that slow, sly smile of his. He seemed always ready to chuckle about something. I haven’t seen him for quite a while, but I have nothing but fond memories of him.

Unfortunately, we can’t be there this week for the funeral but we hope you’ll accept sincere condolences and prayers from both Glenn and me.
God bless,
