Tom returned with a tie and a camera, among other treasures.

When Tom's Auntie Ev died--well, first I should tell you that Auntie Ev loved pink. Everything in her house was pink. Appliances, tile, toilet, sink, bathtub, cabinets, rugs, dishes, and almost all her clothes. And so at her funeral 4 years ago, all the men wore pink ties.

Tom thought it would be a nice thing to do at his dad's memorial if all the guys simply chose a tie of his dad's to wear. So all the men chose a tie from his dad's stash, wore it that day, and took it home.
