Your family is in my thoughts and prayers. He called me Honey one day and a couple days later my son Wyatts sees him and says "Mom isn't that your Honeys?". So from that day one Tom was my Honeys. He will be missed.

Sally was probably so excited to see him. The two of them had a special bond. Love and sympathy to all of you.
