  5. Erin- I’m so sorry to hear of the passing of your father. I cannot imagine that both of your parents are now gone. I always loved hanging out with your father when we were kids. When he has popped into into my head over the years, I always think back to the time we went fishing and he slipped and fell into the river. He was so mad, but he was a good sport as we tried (but not much) not to laugh all the way back home! ☺️
    He always let us crank up the radio and we had so much fun with him. He was such a good person- I can imagine how much he will be missed. 😔

  6. Erin, I’m so sorry for your loss..first your mom and now your dad. You are in my prayers. I have so many memories of Tom. When my parents had a terrible car accident, your grandmother, Aunt Edna, took my sister in I in. Tom was now my “ big brother” as well as my cousin! We stayed there for a month or so and I have so many memories of that, and also all the other times together with all the other cousins. Blessed memories…again Erin, you are in my prayers.
