I just read story about your daughter. It seems in April that she shared a kind gesture and purchased a meal for an on duty officer. I know she was born after you were taken from this world, May you always rest in peace knowing that your sense of service and sacrifice lives on through her. What an amazing daughter. Those officers started an education fund for her.

I never had the privilege and honor of meeting you. Being Born and raised in Perth Amboy and being the son of a retired Perth Amboy Police Officer makes your passing that much closer to home. I've heard great things about your work ethic and professionalism. May you continue to rest in peace. God Speed

It's police week almost 6 years have past since we lost you tommy boy,but not a week goes by that I still don't think of you. Although I only had the pleasure of knowing you for a few short years you made a huge impact on my life.i still goto work each day trying to be the cop that you were .the one who never made excuses that just came out and did the job. That type of cop is very rare around our parts these days .just thought I say hi and wish I could sit down have a beer with ya and you brother

boy oh boy how much I freaking miss hanging out with you brother! Your always in my prayers and have never been forgotten.... I'm sure you're probably shaking your head and wanting to smack me over the head for not taking the Fire Test, but I'm stubborn and in 4.5 weeks I'll be graduating Stamler and working in our town. I will make you proud and know for sure you'll be watching over me! I miss you brother!

I miss you so much. I don't know how to move on without you Tommy. It's so hard. Everyone tells me that I need to realize that you're not coming back and trust me I realize that everyday since you were taken from me. It's just so hard to live life without your best friend and husband. We were so happy and so in love and just like that it was over. If there is some way that you can help ease the pain from heaven, I would really appreciate it. It will be 3 years in August and it feels like just yesterday. I think of you every minute of everyday. You were the best thing that ever happened to me. Just know that you are missed and loved by so many of us. I hope you are watching over us and I especially hope that you are watching Mikayla grow. She is my heart because she is YOU! I wish she had her daddy. I love you Honey and I will continue to love and miss you for as long as I live. Talk to you soon.

It will be two years on the 22nd that you've been gone and yet it feels like just yesterday. People tell me it will get easier but it seems to be getting harder. I miss you each day more and more and think of you all the time. I count the days till I will be with you again. Life isn't the same without my best friend and husband. I love you Babe today more than yesterday but not as much as tomorrow...but I'm sure you already know that.

Merry Christmas Babe! I love you. I think of you each and everyday. Seems like just yesterday that you were here with me. Mikayla looks just like you. So much that it's amazing. I see you everytime I look at her. I will make sure that she knows what a great daddy you would have been and how anxious you were to meet her. Please know that you will never be forgotten. As long as I'm alive, I will do everything in my power to make sure your memory lives. Watch over us as you always did. You are missed by so many friends and family. You touched so many people. I will love you always and so will they.
