On today, the 22nd anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your Community but for our Country as well when you served in the USN. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Tom

It’s been 14 years since that fateful day when Mary called me in the early December morning hours, and I fondly reflect back to the spring of 1971 when we shared our first Fighter Command together and all the Professional and Personal Friendship Years that followed.
At Our beginning, We were Barracks Mates, Roommates, and Classmates during Training. I was by your side when you met and began with Mary, and by your side supporting Mary as she stood over you to say her goodbye’s at the end.
You and I were together when we shared my first command and I will be proud for us to be together again when we share my last command. As True Friends, we shared our Good Times, Bad Times, and all times in between. I am old now, but, I assure you my dear friend, for this Old War Vet, Fallen Hero’s are Never Forgotten. Thinking of you, Love Ya.

Uncle Tommy,
We may have made plans that can't be kept now. But we will soon be able to share those stories. I will always remember what you told me. Thank you! - Little Billy

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

In December it will be 13 years since our Brother traveled to his new precinct. I am sure that he is the chief by now, knowing his love and dedication. Our entire family still misses his laughter, his love, his sincere talks when we were down. The picture on this page is missing the one thing we all know he desereved. A halo around his head. He is an angel in blue watching over us all as the Lord's right hand. We miss and love him.

Tom,
It's hard to believe that you have been gone for so long. I still think of you and Mary often. You were a good troop and are missed.

Tom was a good friend. He loved law enforcement and was enthusiastic about his mission. I remember one summer afternoon when I was mowing my lawn when Tom stopped by to show me his new duty weapon. He was going through the police academy and was very excited about starting his new career. Tom and Mary were regular guests at our home and were always ready for our Friday night poker game. I miss those times around the table hearing Tom laugh and enjoying the game. We all miss him.

Thomas is my oldest brother and is missed very much. He was a good Officer and a dedicated father and husband.I rejoice for the time when we will walk together in the new world, until then may his watch in Heaven be a peaceful one.
