Tom, I just found out you died at 6:29 CST. My alarm clock has been going off at 6:29 every morning Monday Through Friday for 12 years. Knowing this now I will think of you every morning I wake up when I hear my alarm.

I spoke to you 6 weeks before you were taken. I told you I always credited you with saving my life one night in the middle of no where when I thought I was done from fighting with a man. You showed up like an Angel. I had no idea I had anyone coming.

You said you were coming home soon. It breaks my heart that you knew the day before that the Packers were going to the Super bowl. I know you planned on surprising your parents with a Super Bowl Party without telling them.

The Packers won my friend, but I know you had a hand in it. Thanks buddy

I probably only met you once, but I knew your parents. Regardless, there is a bond between law enforcement and a shared sadness between us all at the loss of a comrade. You clearly left a legacy and will not be forgotten. Chief Jerry Jansen (ret), Shorewwod Hills WI Police Dept.

Tommy we shared many a night shift laughing, scared silly and leaning on each other to get through. You are and always will be my bud and I think of you often my friend. Rest easy bro and hopefully we will meet again and have a beer. We all love you brother and miss you very very much. Lt. Mark Brown (ret) City of Madison Police Dept

Tom you are thought about every single day. I pray for your family and especially Paige. I remember the night you told me about meeting her and I will never forget it. You seemed so happy. We met on the steets of St. Pete just after we both got out of the academy. You were more than willing to always help out my Parole/Probation warrants and you and Yongblood were always rite there to assist. We became great friends and worked well together. We did what happened there all the time. We both came from Wisconsin about the same time, same age almost and we just clicked. Youngblood was rite there with ya. I will never forget those times we backed each other up and its a nightmaer what happened to you. I have spoken to Brian lately asking how Paige was doing and I want to send my prayers and thoughts to her and his family back up North. Tom was one of the best cops and always willing to help and do the right thing. I learned alot from him and I will never forget him or out time together. It is just unexplainable why this happened but God must have wanted the good guy back eaely for his reasons we got to trust but hard to understand. I must say I have never Never seen so many police cars in attendance for their funerals. It was a sight i will never EVER forget!! I wish I could do something to help Paige and Tom's family and maybe I can go with Brian someday for lunch or a visit together with Paige, Tom always talked about her and I feel I know her in a way. Life was just dealeta tough hand with the stroke so young but his strenght and determination was inspiring. I will always miss you Tom and my pin contriubting your life is displayed on my dash and I look at it all day lomg for inspiration to keep doing what you loved doing. Our times are precious and Tom is defunatley in Heaven rite now watching over us. And to Paige I woulg really like to help you out in any way, cut grass, fix car, ANYTHING! Brian Youngblood has my number so please call if you need anything, Scott Rogers, Former Parole Probation Officer, St. Pete vicinity. GOD BLESS PAIGE and TOM"S FAMILY UP NORTH in Wisconsin area. I was from Rockford and The Dells area....I think of him daily and you are all in my prayers and always will be. He was one of the best cops I knew!!!!
