My Dad was one of ten children; Mom, one of six. Recently, the last of all of my aunts and uncles passed away, ending my link to a very special generation. Tom, a proud USAF veteran, was indeed special. He loved entertaining children. He loved having a good time. He loved having the latest gadget. He loved telling tall tales, some of which were actually true. But most of all he loved family. I am not the only one who will miss him dearly.
