The family would like to express our most sincere thanks to the staff at Vitality Senior Living. You all showed such love and compassion to Tommy and our family and we are forever grateful.
I will always remember Uncle Tommy calling me “hey boy, come here boy” even after I had children. And Aunt Margaret laughing & telling him to stop! I can still hear her laugh in my mind! Remember the good memories of your Mom & your Dad! I remember Glenn riding a dirt bike & competing and when I was really young I remember Aunt Margaret working on a race car. I’m so sorry that you’ve have lost both your parents in a short time. Remember your younger years and all the good memories. Prayers for all of ya’ll as you go through the grieving process.
