A hero never dies...

Rest in peace, hero.

Tom, I only knew you briefly but remember you well as a man rock solid in your faith. Your untimely passing served as a wake up call for me and probably kept me on my toes and relatively unscathed through the years. You were the first of my uniformed comrades to fall in the line of duty and you will never be forgotten.

"From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remember'd"
