Well Tom, yesterday was 1 year since that dark day in so many people's lives when we lost you. I would have posted something yesterday but as you know, a new little angel was sent one year to the day that you left the earth, my beautiful granddaughter, Chloe. God calls loved ones home everyday and in return we are sent His special, new innocent children to love. I hope heaven has been everything you dreamed it would be my friend- warm, sandy beaches, hammocks in the sun and cigars!!!
My dear friend,
One year ago today I found out about your passing. And even though one year has passed, I find my thoughts of you remain as crystal clear as they were then. You were a blessing to this world and to all of us who had the fortune of being in it at the same time and space as you. Every time, and I mean every time, I see the Michigan block M I think of you...and while it makes me sad that you are no longer here to root on your Wolverines, it also brings a smile to my face when I think of all the fun we had talking about them and my Tigers. I will always treasure the times our families met for dinner or just enjoyed each others company. Rest well my friend...you left the world a better place for you having been in it.
Today marks a year since I was sitting by your side in the hospital. I still can hear your laugh in my head and your voice calling Cupid "Cubby". I've come to the realization that I'll never understand why such a wonderful man was lost a year ago today. I would do anything to have you back. Miss and love you lots. RIP
Today is your birthday! You are 53 years old! I can't believe how much time has past since you left this world. Nothing is the same without you. I never realized how much of you I have in me. I'm so glad I was blessed with your strength. I'm sure I'm making a bunch of mistakes but I still hope I'm making you proud. I hope I've showed you how mature and responsible I can be. I love you more than you will ever know. R.I.P! Xoxo HAPPY BIRTHDAY POPS!!
Today is 24 years since our first date, I still remember everything about it. I know I always got the date wrong until you framed it for me. JULY 22. I was just looking all over for it and I couldnt find it, but Brent sent me a box on the day I was looking for it....and there it was. I know that was a message from you. I was in such shock when I saw it...thank you for all your love. I thank God for the years we had. I'm sorry for the bad days...but I will always remember the good and our wonderful family. I miss you everyday. You will always have my love! I sure wish we went to Hawaii when you asked me...that will always be our special place.
7 months have passed and it's not getting any easier. It feels like just yesterday we were laughing and talking. Ill always remember every little memory. From you always doing things better than me.. Like cart wheels, quarters, and smoke rings. To little things like driving around looking at the stars or just watching movies together. I miss you so much and would do anything for you to be here with me again! I love you daddy. 1-4-3!!! Xoxo
It seems impossible that it has been six months since I heard you laugh, saw you smile and told you I love you! Not a day goes by that you don't cross my thoughts or touch my heart. The happiness you gave me will never be forgotten! Love you more!! D
Everyday goes by without you here, every memory of you is another tear. I'm stuck in this nightmare that I want to end, waiting for a message that you will send. I know you're there looking down on me, and I hope I'm everything you want me to be. I can't explain how much I miss you, but for you there are so many things I can do. I will make you happy and make you proud, and all you're love and advice will be heard loud. I love you dad! I miss you soo much!
Tomorrow marks 3 months and I still don't believe its real. I'm here in Michigan and all I can do is think of you here. It's not the same without you. I think you would be proud of who I have become in the past 3 months. You mean more to me than I could ever explain. I wish you were here to share my life with me but I know you will always be looking down on me. I love you. 1-4-3. You were the best daughter a girl could ever ask for.
A year ago today was our first date. Both a little nervous and unsure but full of excitement at the chance to finally meet. A hug and 5 hours later we closed down the restaurant. The conversation and learning about each other continued for nine months. There wasn't a day we weren't in each others thoughts, never a day we missed an opportunity to tell each other how much we cared. I miss you so much, especially today. You not only told me but you showed me what love is. I found an email from you yesterday that said "God will never give you more than you can handle" Though I believe that with all my heart, I only wish you were here so we could face the world together. I'll never forget your persistence, laughter, loving heart,positive outlook,willingness to help, hugs and sweet kisses. You'll live forever in my heart sweet Tom.
All my love,
I miss you more and more as each day passes. Sometimes I just wish I could bring you back to life. I hate walking into your house and seeing that the TV isn't on and you aren't in your chair or in the kitchen.. It just doesn't seem right. I miss our family dinners on Sunday nights when you, Brit, my mom and I would go out to eat and just enjoy eachothers company. I miss going to the hot tub at Villa with you when no one else would go with me. We always had such great conversations whether is was at dinner, villa, or you were just driving me somewhere. You were always such a huge help to my mom and I. You lifted so much weight off of my mom's shoulders just by driving me to a friends or just letting her vent to you. You always knew what to say. I miss that. I don't think I've ever learned so much from anyone before. You taught me things that I will carry with me for the rest of my life. You were such a strong, smart, giving man and I look up to you so much because of that. I just want to thank you. Thank you for everything you've ever done for me and my mom and thank you for everything you've ever taught me or shown me. Thank you for being the father figure that I never had, I appreciate it more than you will ever know. I know it's silly, but I replay the only voicemail that I have of you over and over again. The price I would pay to just hug you and hear you laugh again is unimaginable. I know I gave you such a hard time for never taking me to the Broadmoor for dinner even though you promised, so even though it will probably be 2 years later we are all going to go for you! I can't believe it's already been a month and a half, it feels like just yesterday I was in the hospital smiling and laughing with you. I think about you everyday and love and miss you more than anything! I'm giving you a virtual hug and kiss on the cheek right now! XOXO
I really miss you. Sometimes it hits me at the most random times. Whenever I smell a cigar or I punch someone in the arm. I don't think I really realized how much you were a part of my life until I left home for college. You were my second dad for my whole growing up. You encouraged me to chase my dreams and do what makes me happy. I will be forever grateful. I don't think I would be the person I am today if you hadn't been in my life. You had the biggest heart and the most contagious laugh of anyone I've known. I know God has a plan and a reason for everything, but I still wish you would have stayed a bit longer. You will always be in my heart. Love you!
I know its been a while dad since I've wrote you and I'm sorry. Each day passes and I miss you more and more. You didnt deserve to leave this world so early... It's not fair. But a quick update for you, things suck. I had no idea you kept so many things and I've learned so much about you. But that is something I am thankful for. You were my back bone and my hero. I truly hope I'm making you proud. You were the most amazing man, friend, and dad. I LOVE YOU.
Daddy. I love you! :/ I just don't know what to do with myself anymore. This is too hard and I hate it. I wish you were here by my side. I can't wait to be with you again. I love you..my guardian angel. Love always and forever your MLG
Merry Christmas sweet Tom! I can only imagine the front row seats you and your mom have listening to Bing sing White Christmas. When we were learning about each other you told me "my Mom would consider me an angle." How fitting that was, I know you'll be looking down and smiling on me every day. I'll always consider you an angle.
Though 9 months is a short time to many, you and I shared a life time of love, laughter, trust and growing. I thank God for blessing me and the girls with you in our lives. You were considered the best when it came to giving advice about boys!
I don't know what plan God has in store for me but do know that you'll be with me every step of the way. I love you always, to the moon and back! I hear you saying "ditto"! All my love and hugs to you, D.
p.s. You'll have the best tan but be careful who you take your shirt off in front of!
I'll never forget starting my work day sitting in your office with my coffee. You had so much to say and I had so much to learn. You taught me so much with such a positive outlook on everything. You will remain in my heart forever.
Merry christmas daddy! I love you. Thank you so much for all the gifts. Knowing you thought of me means more than words can explain. I wish you were here with me pops, but I know you're looking down on me smiling. 1-4-3 xoxo
Daddy, I love you more than words can explain. This has been the hardest thing I have ever gone through, but I know you are by my side every step of the way. You could always make me smile and laugh, your heart was so big and full. I will live my life like you would have and I will make you proud. I know there is a hole in the floor of heaven and you are looking down on me. You will never be forgotten. I thank god everyday I was blessed with you. You are now my guardian angel. 1-4-3
<3 Brittany (Your little girl) xoxo

Much Love Always,
"Dear friend, You left us too soon, I will miss you..."Lina
Tom we miss and love you. You are safe with God and your mom and dad. My heart will break forever.
Tom we love you. All the years of fun at each others homes and everywhere . The talks on fb when everyone else slept. You brought 2 wonderful children to adulthood and they have so many of your good traits. You were taken to soon and only God knows why. I love you and miss you. I'll see you in heaven RIP Tom
Tom, I miss you already,
Tom, I will miss you. Especially how excited we both would get as summer approached and we would compete to see who could get more time in the sun. I have so many great memories of you at your house, our house, Tina's house and especially visiting with you by the pool at Villa Sport which I think was a slice of heaven on earth (at the adult pool without all the little kids). Thank you for all the honest talks, all the laughs, and all the times you had me completely confused by your sarcasm and quick wit. I love you my friend, you are gone too soon. I know I will see you again on the other side.
You will forever be my big brother.
Dearest Tom: I can't begin to tell you how very blessed Chuck and I are to have had you as a friend. You will be so missed here on earth , your temporary home, but you will make heaven that much nicer. We will never forget all the good times and laughter you brought into our lives. It was just not long enough. I so wished that you could have stayed long enough to meet your future grandchildren. Brent and Brittany will have such great stories and memories to share with them. I hope you find that heaven is full of sunshine, beaches and a comfy hammock with your name on it. Soar with the angels and RIP.
