Reflections for Police Officer Thomas Alan Cook

The investigators have done a wonderful job. This was the most complex and drawn out case I have ever heard of. They have our undying gratitude and utmost respect. I would like to thank everyone who worked on this case. We will all hear about it soon. Justice is on the way !!!

Uncle Tommy,
Im having a rough night. Im in a new place far from my parents and i feel alone. Sometimes I wonder if you would be proud of me and I just wish I could hear you say it. I just wish I could remember your voice. I think about you all the time and I miss you every day. Love, Bean :)

The memory of Tom Cook's life cannot be erased by the cowardly and shameful actions of a couple of evil men. Tom Cook will be remembered by those people who worked with him, laughed and joked with him, and loved him. Tom Cook will always be alive in the memory of these people. the men responsible for Tom Cook's death will forever have to live with the guilt and shame of such an evil and senseless act. They will be made to punish for their crimes. Justice will always prevail.

God Bless the investigators who are working on this case. Even thought it may seem like progress is slow, time is on their side. The scum that took out Tommy's life, and forever changed his family's lives, will pay for their sins. The men and women working to that end get the highest respect and enormous gratitude from all of us. Evil will not prevail, justice will win over, the case will be solved and the guilty men punished.

Tom,
The night you died was the worst thing that ever happened to me in 30 years of law enforcment. I will never forget what happened. have faith in the Task Force, they have never slowed down and will never give up until the guilty men are in prison, or receive a more severe punishment. Pam, Laurie, and I left flowers at your grave last Monday. You will never be forgotten.

Four years ago my life changed forever. September 27,2006 was the saddest day of my life. We stood at your grave yesterday and had a shot of Jack. Its so hard to see your name on a grave stone. Im so sorry that you had to die the way you did. Im so sorry you died alone. The pain at times is more then I can handle. I love you and I miss you every day. It never seems to get any easier. Forever in my heart little brother..............

Tommy,
Thinking of you today. Its September, and its almost been four years. I dont know if there will ever be any answers. Im starting to loose faith. As the sun is setting earlier every night I think of you remembering our last times togethor, our last phone calls and that dreadful night. I miss you, love you and my life has never been the same without you..........

Tom,
Thinking of you so much right now. We used to love September so much. The kids were in school. You would start planning Halloween and Jessica's birthday party. Warm days but cool nights ment dinners in the oven and apple pies! I can't believe that it will be soon 4 years that you were taken from us so suddenly. Right now it is so difficult raising the kids on my own but, you always said I can do it if anything would happen. Rembering that helps me get through. I am so proud of the kids they are wonderful and they remind me every day of you. Give Mishka and Kiska hugs from us. We love you!

Im here at work and a great sadness just came over me. I miss you so much. I look back and dont know how I was able to survive these last years. I missed your call on my birthday. You never forgot about me. I miss our 2 hour talks. You were my best friend and I dont think you ever realized it. I will never understand why you were taken from us. It just doesnt make sense and it never will. I waited alone on a train platform for Traci last night. I asked you to be with me and to keep me safe. I hope you heard. Im still not crazy about the quiet dark. It makes me remember that dark lot and how you died alone. I love you with all of my heart. When you left us part of my heart went with you.

Tom,
Today is peace officers memorial day. I have the flag that you bought for Wally up on the flagpole. Sad that me and the kids missed going to DC this year. They put up a brautiful wreath in your honnor by the wall. So many of my friends that are there stopped by your name. I have been going through so many pictures of you these past few weeks. It has brought so many wonderful memories of you. The kids always pick out their favorites as I do too. We love and miss you so much. Always our Hero!

Thinking about you today and the fun we had growing up. Riverdale really was the best place to grow up. I see messages from your family and it breaks my heart that you're not here with them. It just seems to get sadder as time goes on. Please continue to watch over them and your brothers in blue. Hugs!!

Tom,
Not a day goes bye without us thinking about you! Your little guy turned 12 last week. Well I really can't call him a little guy anymore. He is almost as tall as me. You warned me that would happen sooner that I wanted it to. The kids are off this week for spring break. They miss staying up with you and watching tv and movies. They also miss the late night run to McDonalds for a late night snack on your way home from work. Life feels so empty with out you here with us. Sometimes I can feel you around especially when my clock stops for no reason. We love you so very much!
