BC: The End
FC: TOM aka TC
1: Thomas Wayne was born on January 4th at Mary Greeley Hospital in Ames, Iowa. During his hospital stay, I went to the local Montgomery Ward's to buy a washer and dryer for his clothes and cloth diapers. | It was a cold, snowy Iowa night when we went to the hospital and, so the story goes, I slid through a stop sign because of the ice. When stopped by a cop, I told him we were taking Mom to the hospital and he let me go. Tom was named after his uncle Howard, whose nickname was Tommy.
2: Grandma Cummings (Nana) spent as much time as she possibly could with Tom. | Grandpa Cummings would drop by on Sunday nights to bring "Tommy" some ice cream. | Great-Grandma Cummings was so proud of her great-grandson. For years, she wrote notes to the boys. She was a very sweet lady.

8: The Early Years | A neighbor once played a name game with Tom's middle name, Wayne. He started calling him the Duke, after John Wayne's nickname. So, I started calling him Duker doggie, after a dog we once had. When called Duker Doggie, he would get on all fours and pant and bark like a dog. Cute!!! | When Tom was about two, he hit his mouth on a window ledge and knocked his two front teeth out. We felt so bad for him but, after taking him out for ice cream, he forgot about it. It would be about six years before his adult teeth would come in.
