Well. Tom made the trip to Ohio on Thursday and returned home on Saturday. While in Ohio he stayed with his brother and sister-in-law, Roger and Cindy. On Thursday evening, Tom and Roger went to their uncle Bob's viewing in North Baltimore. There were many of the same faces that they had seen just six weeks ago at their aunt Liz's viewing and funeral. Sonny and his wife came in from South Dakota and Connie flew up from Texas.
Uncle Bob's death has been hard on all of us. We were hoping that 2007 would be a good year for him and perhaps he could have spent some time on the road with Connie and Ed and Tom and Leah. I guess God had a different plan for him. He knew God and home at last with Aunt Liz.
Tom's mother was able to make the trip to the funeral. Her health has not been the best for quite sometime either. She will be 80 on the 13th of January.
