Uncle Tom was a Great Guy. A person who expressed True Faith in the One and Only True God of all creation!! I miss Him, and await my chance to see Him again and together serve our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for all eternity!

Put your faith in whom all blessings flow. No other name compares to the One who died an innocent death to save His beloved children. I praise the Almighty King, the maker of heaven and earth. The Alpha, The Omega, The Beginning, The End, The Great "I AM".

with all my sincere love and kindness, Jerald J. Bade (Uncle Tom's Faith filled nephew).

One of my favorite cousins! He could tell funny stories and make me laugh. Tommy always seemed deliberate in his actions which when we were kids was good and a foil to my sometimes acting on impulses. Loved seeing all the work and care he brought to the old family home.
