We are so lucky Uncle Tom was part of our family. He and Aunt MaryJane, along with 8 of us kids, shared many great times in Enfield, Florida, and Granby. They are known to our children as the third set of grandparents. How blessed we all are!! Thanks for all of the fond memories and laughs Uncle Tom!!! XOXO, Donna, Bob, Nick, and Cat
