Does anyone remember his mom?  Poodle?  I have a ring that she gave my mom as she dated Thomas.

Met Thomas Holmes when he was stationed at Shepherd Air Force Base, Wichita Falls, Texas. AF 12346030 Hq & Hq Squadron 3750 th Tech. Training Wing. Very Nice gentleman. Met him through a friend in February 1951. He attended a Valentine dinner with me at my High School.  He was about 20 and I was 16. He drove an impressive dark green Buick convertible and we had a few dates together. He was very mysterious about his family and home.
