Sir, I have not forgotten all your valuable life lessons that you taught me while I was still a cadet in your PLT. I had looked forward to linking up with you upon my return back to WI, only to learn about your ill fate..

I now walk in the same career and foot step as you, I can only hope to be half the man that you were.

I will always remember your kindness as a leader and a person.

We will meet again brother.

I would like to have Tom's name and family history entered in my book, WORTHAM CONNECTIONS, History of Worthams goes back to 1640 when one Thomas Wortham came to Virginia from England. To enter my book I need the names of Tom's father, grand father, if available, his great grand father. I have discovered relatives of members
not known to present day subjects. Very interesting.

I met Tom in Iraq, on his first tour; we were involved in an action where Tom showed under fire his ethic and devotion to his brother in arms; namely me, and I was thankful he had my back. We became long- distance friends and even linked up again on our next Iraq tours, thankfully that time without any gunfire.
He's an example of the standard men should be measured by, and he will never be forgotten.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the second anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.

I pray for solace for all that love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Your family is in my heart's embrace, especially your parents. Thanks to your friends for sharing their memories and devotion to you through their reflections.

Rest In Peace.
