Dearest Kay and family,
Daryl and I have many fond memories of Tom. I will mention one of my favorites here. Kay and Tom came to Texas, stayed with us and participated in all the activities surrounding our eldest wedding July 18, 1992. Yes, Tom's birthday......we celebrated that too with cake and all. It was wonderful having them both with us to share the special time with our family. I cannot begin to mention all the help and support you both were to us that week. From cleaning, shopping, cutting and pealing fruit, tending flowers, chauffeuring, taking pictures, etc., and even Tom driving across Dallas after the wedding to pick up an extra set of keys to a rental car, after the keys accidently got locked in the car with the engine running. Tom was everyone's hero saving the day. To you Tom Grinage probably the most selfless man we've ever known.
Love from your forever friends,
Sandy and Daryl Barnaby
