Dad, to say I miss you so much already is an understatement. You were the best dad and friend I could have ever asked for. Thank you for teaching me life’s most important lessons; whether it was the importance of working hard or having a good time, you were the perfect role model for both. Thank you for always being there for me, whether it was getting my tonsils out or getting my oil changed, you never made me do it alone.
While you’re up there throwing back a couple cold beers with your brothers, sister, and parents, don’t forget to tell them that I was your favorite kid 😉 love you forever and sending you so many hugs.
Tommy, you will so missed! Thanksgiving will never be the same because nobody can make stuffing like you. And I won’t have anyone to argue politics with. I love and miss you so much. Till we meet again. RIP 🙏
