I will always remember your homemade pickles and sneaking down to the basement with Lisa looking for jars that were ready to eat, Christmas Eve parties at your house, and lots of dinners and hanging around the house growing up. My thoughts and prayers are with Tommy and the rest of the family. Fly high !!
