Tommy,

Was just sitting here thinking of you. We had some good times growing up! We still laugh about the night drinking in your basement after an afternoon shift when the JD came out. That was crazy. I think of your family often and how wrong life is. I hope you are at peace and I will never forget you. Please keep us safe!!

Tom,
Miss you! The holidays are so not the same without you here. With being sick all week I tried to have a good Halloween for the kids. I decorated a little more than last year but it was still missing your touch. Love you lots!

Tom,
Jessica had a great fall season of softball. Her team worked very hard together and played great during the tournament. They placed first! I know you always said she could do anything. I am very proud of her. She had a tear in her eyes when all the dads came up. But I know you were there! We miss you!!!

Tom,

Smelled a Carrot Cake candle today, and thought of you telling us at work that it smelled like shit on a stick! We gave you so much shit about that for a long time! I miss your wit and laughter at work, and miss your stories you would tell us!

Rest in peace my friend! You are always in my thoughts and heart!

Tom,
I can still hear your voice that night talking about planning Jessica's birthday party with her friends. Telling you that Jimmy's team won their soccer game. You told me to call back when they were in bed. I didn't get that chance to talk to you again. To say be carefull and I love you. There is never a day that goes by that your name doesn't come up. We thought of you on Sunday a little more. The memories that me and the kids have helped us to get throught the day. Jessica is now taking over for you by decorating the house for the holidays. Thank you for keeping us safe last night. She was so scared and calling out for you. It broke my heart. But she said that daddy wouldn't let anything happen to us or the house. She was right. We love and miss you so much.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the third anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service.

Tom,
Well i did it. I took the kids downtown. We went to Navy Pier. I still remember the first time we took the kids there. Jimmy rode on the Thomas the train. We ate at the expensive mc donalds. This time we ate at bubba gump shrimp. Not your kind of restaurant but the kids liked it. We also went on the ferris wheel. Jimmy and Jessica started to rock it just like you aleays did. Then we went to the air and water show. Jimmy was in heaven. He had to tell me what the airplanes were. You tought him so well. We then went to american girl. Jessica still remembers how you were in the store. I don't think I could tell who was happier her or you? I am proud to say me and the kids had a great time. We made it home safe and sound. Thank you for starting those memories with us. I will try to keep them going for me and the kids. We love you forever and ever.

Justice is moving slow--but with each court date--it looks closer and closer, and definately moving in the right direction!! We will never forget and we will see this thru untill the end. R.I.P

Tom,
It was a sad day for me and the kids. We knew that some day it would happen. Today I had to make that decision. Kiska is now up with you and Mishka. She was very sick. The kids said that you were waiting for her. I will miss her big smile and her face! I can still remember the day we bought her. The store was closing and they stayed open just for you to convince me to buy her. You said that Mishka was lonley and he wanted a friend. She jumped up in my face and kissed it. That was it. She came home with us and she found her name. Kiska. Keep good care of her. I did my best. Me and the kids still you guys with all our heart.
