My prayers and blessings go out to the Ponsetti family and to all who knew Tommy. He was my cousin through his mother, Anna, whose brother was my dad Robert Alexander Jr. of St. Joe, OH. His passing means there is a loss being borne by his family and friends, but he is in God’s hands now, and we will see him again when our time comes to leave this life. May God grant his family the peace and understanding to survive his passage and help them know Tommy will be looking down on them until they reunite in Heaven.
