    Uncle Tom & Aunt Vicki both meant the world to me. They were both a big part of my childhood as extended parental figures when needed. Uncle Tom you will be sorely missed as much as Aunt Vicki. My heart grieves deeply for my cousins Patty, Tommy, Mary & their entire family. Love and miss you all.
