Uncle Tommie was well loved and will be hard missed. My heart memory of him will be, in his early 20's all suited up, talking impressive college talk and calling me Miss Priss.

My Uncle Tommie was well loved and will be hard missed. I have so many fond memories of him, from my childhood on. I will always remember him from his early 20's, in a dark suit and tie, being all suave and sophisticated, such an impressive college man. That's the way my heart will see him. He was my Mother Virginias little brother,and she loved her some Tommie.
