Tom was a wonderful person with a heart the size of Texas. He loved everyone he came in contact with. He lived a good life. He loved to skateboard and hang with his friends. He would do anything for his family, probably strangers, too. He was taken away from us just a short time ago, and I will never forget that day. He was crossing the street and was hit by a car. He was in a coma for 9 days,and on a ventilator. On the 10th day he was pronounced brain dead and taken away forever. We all miss him terribly and want him back, but we know he is in a better place now. Every night, when I go to bed, I talk to him, and ask him to watch over my mom and sister. I love them so much and can't stand to lose another. In loving memory of Podunk,"He was to young to die and he only lived part of his wonderful life." We love and miss you Podunk, you will always be in our hearts.
