Tom, it will soon be the 2 year mark since you went
to be with the Lord. We still miss you everyday. No one will
ever be able to fill the place you left in my life or our
families lives. However, I thank the Lord each day for placing you
in our family and for every moment we had with you. We have
been blessed beyond measure because of those moments.
There are constant reminders of you when we least expect it that
serve to comfort us and remind us of how precious
you were. At times it feels that God & you are reaching out to us
to let us know you are still here and that you are
seeking to comfort us. Keep these coming, we hear and feel you!
Love always from your devoted sister.

As time passes I am realizing more and more just how much I miss you. Life here on earth with out you is just not the same. I keep your memory alive in so many different ways and carry you close to my heart as always. I remember and I reflect on the words we once shared. You are like no other and I am blessed that our paths crossed and I know in my heart that our paths will cross again someday.
For now you are my forever and always and I am missing you deeply...

Just wanted you to know that we were thinking of you on your birthday but then we think of you everyday. Sometimes we talk to you. I wonder if you can hear us? We still suffer greatly with your absence but we are comforted (at least in small measure) by our wonderful memories. I am trying to take care of the family in your absence but it is hard. Mom & Dad are still so wounded by your loss. I don't think they will ever recover until they see you again in Heaven. They do the best they can and as you know they are strong people but the wound is so deep. For the first time in my life I have seen Dad weep because his heart is so heavy. Mom just clings to anything and everything that reminds her of you. Charley and I do the best we can but we have heavy hearts too. I still say that it is just not right that you aren't here. We know that we have to accept God's will so we try very hard to do that. However, the Rowell family is not the same without you here.
When I think about you I can't help but be so proud you are my brother and I always will be.
Be at peace my dear brother.
With love forever, Mom, Dad, Charley & Sandie.

PS...since you are up there with Jesus, please petition for his help with John and we are doing the same down here.John needs God's grace.

I am missing you more with each passing day. The friendship we shared
is like no other and these tears I cry are the tears I cry for you. You have always been so very special to me. I miss you now more then ever. I came across this poem I wrote for you about a year ago and decided to post it here.

Sweet Angel of mine

Be with me and keep me warm
with your emrace
Shine your light upon me
and guide me
Be with me always
as I am with you......
Sweet Angel My Sweet Sweet Angel
Oh how I miss you....

The memories of riding with Tom shall not pass into that goodnight. I remember when the PGR of FL was going through a transition and how Tom was instrumental in supporting us during the tough times. I enjoyed his company, his support and mostly his friendship. Although he has left us he will not be forgotten.

Rest easy Tom. Mission complete, job well done!

Tom - you have NOT been forgotten my friend. You are truly missed here on earth but will live in the hearts of many for eternity. I laugh and think of you every time I hear someone say, "I support the troops but not the war". If I'm feeling bold at the moment I grin and use your reply...

I'll see you on the other side of the mountain Brother...
