Condolence & Memory Journal

I'm Tommy Barbers son I remember being a little kid going to your mom and dads house almost every thanksgiving or Christmas or just driving by to say hi I remember every time I would leave their house saying goodbye uncle Mel would pick me up in the air and say goodbye. I keep getting old and older ever year and it got to a point were I got too big for him to pick me up I remember the day he couldn't pick me up anymore and it would make me sad but I wouldn't show it because I was still able to say goodbye and I learned that, that just part of life the younger is going to get older and the older is going to get older... rest easy uncle Mel

Dad, Mom asked me to post the poem I wrote you for your birthday in 2007, but it's too long, so I'm just posting the link to it. It's called, "THE TREE"

Well Now what? Where do I call now? Is there a Party line where you are?
I have the words you say to me,every time I call, going over and over in my mind.
Question, "How are you today"?
You would ALWAYS Reply, " Just as aggravated and contrary as ever!"
"Well you are a Brat" my friend and I will love you for that and your sassy way for ever and ever.
RIP my dear father in law. I love you, Always xoxo
