I remember the last time I visited with Uncle Lacy and Aunt Theresa a couple of years ago. I hadn't seen them in several years. Uncle Lacy was asleep, and when Aunt Theresa told him I was there, his eyes immediately popped wide open. I didn't know until I got there that it was his birthday. As I was leaving, he shook my hand and told me 'Tommy, God bless you and your family and everyone who is trying to do the right thing.' I will never forget that.
