Did You Know Him?
My cousin died last night. Today there is talk of arrangements and funerals. There are decisions to be made. People full of good intentions are putting in their two cents worth. I just had to ask, "did you KNOW him?"
Tommy was not a quiet little church guy. Tommy was music, dirt bikes, camping trips and laughs. Tommy was the kid who got in trouble for throwing bottle rockets at a cemetery. He was not dark suits and ties. He was flannel shirts and jeans. His "good shoes" were boots! He wore a baseball cap to his own father's funeral. Did you know him?
Tommy was salt in the sugar bowl. He was a trickster and a nut. There was nothing he would not do and he got in a lot of jams being him!
I don't have a dog in this race. But if someone would ask me, I would tell them. Send him out the way he would like. Let him wear his flannel shirt and instead of a memorial throw a cook out. And everybody bring your guitars! That was Tommy!
