I hope he knows how much we respected and loved him, and how grateful we were to be loved by him. You may have called him Tom, but we are so lucky and so proud to call him Dad. Our Dad will never truly be gone because he will always live in our hearts. Graveside services will be held Thurs, Sept 19 at 11 AM at the Zeske Family Cemetery in Abingdon, VA.
