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!

Tomorrow I leave for Alton Illinois to ride across the state in your memory for the third year. Hope you dont mind but Ill also be riding for two other officers. Ill have your pin over my heart. Please help me this ride. Its been such a long year. Alittle push from you might be needed. I wish I didnt have to do this in your memory. I wish you were at the end cheering me on. I love Tommy. Keep me and all of the riders safe.............

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!

Happy Birthday. You would of been 46 today. The holidays were quiet for me this year. I needed to be alone. Our family has lost too much and this year was especially hard. Just no that I think of you everyday. And sometimes the pain is just as bad as it was 3 years ago. I love you with all my heart

Tom,
The holidays have come and gone once again with out you here with us. I put up as much decorations and the tree as I could. There is so much stuff I can not ever look at that you bought for me and the kids it's so sad. One day I hope and pray that I can put it up. The kids enjoyed their trees in their room that you bought them. Jimmy wanted to put blue lights on his,Jessica had purple. They had a good christmas. They are still excited about the holidays. Jessica has your love for decorations. The kids have really helped me get everything done. I am so very proud of them. We finally got a big amount of shoveling snow. As I was clearing off the driveway I could hear you repeat that I didnt want a snow blower cuz I love to shovel. I miss haveing Kiska around right now. She was my snow angel. She would of had so much fun digging in the snow. We wish you and the dogs were here with us. We love and miss you so much!
