WOW, I cannot belive that in 9 days it will be 14 years since you left us/me on my birthday. Having had the honor of being your friend and being on the radio dispatching for your very first call, and doing your "last call" is an honor that will stick with me for the rest of my life. We became friends through the radio and brothers off the radio. We shared a lot of laughs, jokes and emotional times and I am truly forever grateful that you were a part of my life. I miss you terribly and appreciate you always looking out for me. I honestly belive I wouldn't be alive today if it weren't for you. Continue to watch over us all Tommy. Until we see each other again.
