This is an old post from June of 2008, we found out yesterday that my Uncle Tom has moved on. Once again I need to tell Leeanne and Garth how amazing caretakers they have been for all of their parents. It is funny to think with my memory they way it is, his is about the only phone number I have never forgot.
You will be missed.

Tom is one of my Mother's three brothers . He is closest to her in age, and I get the impression that if Tom was in trouble Mom was most likely with him. I have lots of memories with Tom, Margie and their daughter Leanne. They took me on many of their vacations which included my whining ,crying and my mean streak that they would put up with. Lots of sleep overs , laughing and playing Yahtzee. I remember Tom taking us on a car ride on some back road that included lots of crazy turns and stomach flipping dips, and at the end of the "Ride" he wanted Leanne and I to pay him for all the fun we had .
My sister and I were going around to family members getting memories for a scrapbook we were making about our Grandmother Ina Fry. We were at Toms getting his contribution to the book and there were times he was laughing so hard that his tears (and ours) were uncontrollable, I had to get a mop just to clean them up, the stories he could tell!
Mom and Tom were given the title "The Fighting Fry's " after an incident at the old Terrace ballroom in Salt Lake City in May of 1974! That day will go down in history as of one of Aunt DiAna's most memorable nights at work.
At this time Tom and Margie are facing health issues please keep them in your thoughts and prayers, and also for Leanne and her husband Garth for taking such good care of them both.
Thanks for the memories,,,Whitey
