My condolences to the family and many friends of Mr. Tom as I called him. He was an uncle to my daughter-in-law. But the few times I was around him I remember him being kind spirited and friendly. I’m so glad he is out of pain and now with the Lord. Comfort and Peace Val (yaya)

I really hadn't seen Tom much in recent years. But as a child and teenager, my family would frequently visit with Great Uncle Frank, Aunt Ruth, Tom, Tony and Donna. Your entire family was very nice and fun to be around. My condolences and deepest sympathy for Tom's children, Tony, Donna and your families. RIP cousin.

My uncle Tom was always so kind and sweet. I'm grateful we got to spend the last several years with him here in Kansas City. I loved hearing the stories about his music career. Stevie Wonder is one of my favorite musicians - WOW! But even more important, back in 2018 I remember a conversation with him. He was talking about some of his health issues and said,  "You know I got saved several years back and the fact that I'll probably die in a few years doesn't scare me at all. I know where I'm going." Glad you are with the Saviour now uncle Tom. Love you!
