Mar, Sandie and I always felt Tom and Mel were more like brothers than cousins. We have lots of fun and happy childhood memories. When we were adults and married he would stop in my home in Jamestown often just to have chocolate chip cookies and conversation. In later years he would stop in on any given Sunday to either my or my sisters home just to visit and to keep in touch. He and Don sold Christmas trees for a couple of winters. Too many memories to mention. We love him and will miss him.
So sorry for your loss.
