It was ironic last night to be back in Union where things all started for Grandpa. Tommy Jr. made him proud with a courageous performance as he played with an injured ankle. For some reason the Loeffler boys were brought back to this home on the same night as his birthday. It was really nice to share the experience with Tommy Jr., Tom Sr., Camielle, Dad & John Hagan. Love you Grandpa!
