today is the day that we remember tom's death and tomorrow is the day that we celebrate his life...it's usually a hard few days...the 4th was tom's favorite holiday after christmas...he loved getting together with friends and family...loved to watch the fireworks...today, 8 years ago, he passed away..it was a hard(probably the hardest thing i've ever done) but a sweet time...thanks mostly to bev,my friend who is a nurse and really took care of us that day...it's been a long 8 years...but, it's also just flown by...my kids have grown and changed so...kerry was just 9 and now she's a beautiful 17, almost 18...we have babies, in laws, college students, graduates...a life time has happened in the last 8 years....tomorrow, tom would be 51....maybe he would have gray hair...instead he still looks forever young...that's not too fair...i'm aging rather rapidly.....so happy birthday dear tom...you're always my honey....hope you're watching us and cheering us on...i love you...
