Tom was a great friend, great man and is still missed today by all who knew him. Years ago he was reluctant to borrow my Harley but I am glad he did. He enjoyed the freedom of the road and I am glad I had the opportunity to help him do it. See you again someday Brother.

Hey Tom,
it seems like just yesterday that we were carpooling to the academy. I can't believe 20 years has flown by so damn fast. I spoke to Rob and Ronnie today. We're getting together tomorrow, 2/28/14. It'll be the first time we've made plans since the four of us went to Ciao Baby. Never seemed the same without you.

Hey Tom,

I just found out today that you were taken from us as a result of 9/11. I didn't even know you were one of the blue like I am. I have been at Lake Success PD since 1997 and have lived in Smithtown since 2002. We were living and working so close together and didn't even know it. The last time I remember seeing you is around graduation from HBHS in '88. I am so sorry to here you are not with us anymore. May you Rest In Peace Brother. My belated condolences to your entire Family my friend.

Thomas,

5 years has passed and it still feels like 5 minutes. I miss everything about you and wish you were still with us. Unfortunately that's not possible so I struggle everyday to go on without you in our lives. I am strong and I feel your guidance with me all the time. I always ask myself "What would Thomas do?".

You guide my sail and are always in my heart.

I love and miss you,

Your Brother,

Justin
