You Are Not Forgotten!!
Tom, once again as I come to another Memorial Day, I pause and think of you in a very personal way we were great buddies, you and I. Yes, you were three yrs older than I, but that didn't take away how I admired you for your stand for our Lord, and for your honor to our great country. As a 17yr old, I don't remember allowing myself to grieve your loss in 1970 instead, my real grieving process came about eight years ago, when my own son turned 20, your age at the time you were taken from us. It then hit me as a Mom with a 20yr old, I was overcome with the tremendous grief that this had to have caused your own Mom and family. We know that we'll see you again someday in Glory, and as for now, your picture sits on my buffet as a reminder of who you were, and what you have always meant to me. I still have the last birthday card you sent to me prior to your death, and enjoy periodically taking it out and reminding myself of the fun times we had, and of the ultimate sacrifice you gave for our country. You are forever loved and not forgotten!

Dear Tom, We'll never forget when you babysat us four "Joy Siblings" that day long ago at our house on Avery Street. You were like a "big brother" and what fun we had having a "Pillow Fight" in the "Front Room" with YOU! Thanks for the good memory! We can remember the day when we all heard the sad news at Church.and sat around in the Fireside Room praying and reminiscing about you.with your picture sitting on the Mantel. You served and died for our Country with Bravery and Honor. You are not forgotten. And we thank you. See you someday "at Home in Heaven"! ~ With JOY ~ Carla, Barb, Bob & Scott
