“Tommy”, as we referred to him while growing up, will always bring a smile to my face when I think of him! Whenever we vacationed in Wisconsin and Michigan from Ohio, visiting our Spoerke and Audit relatives, Tommy was always having a good time, and had the most hearty laugh!! He was a great cousin and I have many, many fond memories of him and his parents, sibs, and our West Bend cousins/family, too! He and my brother, Joe, were two peas in a pod – what characters! My sympathy and prayers go to Eric, Carol, and all of his beloved family members. Rest In Peace, Tommy. ❤️
