    One of the things I remember most fondly is Christmas Eve dinner at Connie's house. We would have dinner, open gifts and Tom and I would sit in the kitchen telling stories about my Grandma, whom we called Buzzy. Some times the tears were running down our faces with these stories. We would talk about our time working for the steel company and about how we looked in pictures from when we were little kids. Anyone who knew Tom well, also knew he loved jokes. I was so delighted that he and his family came to my get together in October. May light perpetual shine upon him. Relative Judie
