All of us cousin\'s would visit out in Idaho at grand parents house. Us cousin\'s would all hang out. We would hang out at the park, (swinging on the swings,landing on the picnic tables)the high school track, riding vintage old bikes and playing hide and go seek. It was so much fun playing with all the cousins and neighbor friends in the dark.
Tom loved dressing all in black. He thought he was a ninja. He would hide and pretend to be a ninja. He had lots of cool ninja things. I had never seen throwing stars except in movies! Tom was very sweet! He will be greatly missed! Love and prayers to the family!
