  13. Tom, the big brother of the family! He was the rock of the family with the softest heart. Big strong hands that could move mountains, but gentle enough to soothe a child or his ill parents. A voice loud enough to wake the dead, but soft enough to talk you through the toughest times. As a child I could only see the rough side, but when I matured I got to see the kind man he had become. Tom touched so many, and left his mark. He gave himself to Christ, and now he can spend eternity with his loved ones that left before him. RIP my brother until we meet again. Love, Your Baby Sister
