A Proud Nephew!

Tommy was my larger-than-life Uncle and he passed when I was 7. Many thanks to those that have posted here, I only happened upon the site this week. Like you, I think of Tommy often. Through the eyes of a youngster, I remember the impact of Tommy more through my Grandparents (Tim & Mary) and the absolute sadness that pervaded this Brooklyn community at that time. I remember a cold, damp joyless time that seemed to last for months. My Grandfather came to deliver the news as we lived right around the corner. His face was always red and full of cheer. I delighted in seeing my Grandfather as there would always be a quick joke or something clever forthcoming.... just not this day....it was a different face. I will not forget.

So, while much changed that day I was able to see this strong family come together and pick up the pieces. All my love to Tim, Mary, Teddy, Catherine and Georgina for being a wonderful family! My immense pride for my Uncle Tommy has only grown. I will always look with reverence upon our flag and those men and women that died for it. As I lament an Uncle I never got to know, I just wanted to thank you all for keeping Tommy alive in your thoughts and prayers!

About 20 years ago (?), my Aunt Catherine was contacted by a Vietnam Vet (George) who was close to Tommy when he passed. I recall the gentleman was from the Pittsburgh area and was able to track down my Aunt (as Tommy had told him that his sister was a Nun in Long Island). They arranged to meet in Eastern PA as a mid-point. My Mom, Aunt and Grandmother made the trip. There were a lot of tears and laughs and I believe the visit was a big help for Tommy’s family & his friend. He had been holding in his Vietnam experience for many years and it was not easy for him. I understand that my Aunt and George continue to correspond!

Patrick: Thanks for your wonderful note and I hope you never have any regrets! I’m sure there will never be a good answer to dealing with the unfair burden placed on you boys. Just know that you picked a very good friend in Tommy and his family would be there as you needed. Thanks again Patrick for your service and remembering my Uncle!
