    Mary and Edward, Strength and Blessings to you both, the news of Toms passing is too sad. It will not be the same without him telling Joe how to drive, and trying to get out of Weds cleaning. He had found a spot in both our hearts that will always belong just to him. We are both so sorry for your loss.
