Uncle Tom, You have had some hardship in your life after Aunt Lou passed. I am glad I was able to help you to get your life back and with the people who loved you. Brandie Coffee aka Crystal Jordon posted a amazing tribute on FB for you. I or anyone else could have not said it better. You were a sweet, kind and lovable man. Aunt Lou was a lucky lady to have had you in her life. You are now reunited with the woman you love, aunt Lou. R.I.P. love “Babe”
