Tommy, thanks for being the great friend you were. Thanks for being there when I needed someone to talk and when I was down on my luck. Thanks for your friendship and the privilege of having worked with you. Thanks for giving me your friendship without asking for anything in return. Every time I come to Artesia, I go by and pay my respects by the little memorial on the side of the road. I miss the old days and the little “tangos” after work. I miss the laughs and the war stories that I heard from you guys with my undivided attention. You guys were the living example of a true Gentlemen and Agents. I will never forget you guys.

Hey Tommy,


Your wife came to the station the other day, I guess she is doing well under the circumstances.


Man, it has been cold up in your home's area, they have been getting hit pretty hard this winter.  We miss you at the station Tom.  Every day I have to walk down the hall and see your picture, it's hard.  I see the newer Agents looking at the pictures and I just want to tell them all how great a man you were and try to make them understand what a loss it was.  I guess having never known you they would have a hard time being able to put it into perspective.


Well Tommy boy, I just wanted to say hi there and le you know there are still a good number of us that are in the station and haven't forgotten you and we make it our duty to ensure the new Agents know who you are and what you stood for.


Miss ya boy.
