Its been over 6 months and yet, I don't think it has truly sunk in yet. I always expect you to walk into church being loud and fun as usual and I am heart broken everytime you don't. I expect you to play the drums with your whole heart and come and give me a hug after the service. You will NEVER be forgotten. We love you.

its been over two months since you left to go home with the lord and I can't begin to say how much I miss you. I know you are in a place where you always knew you would be at but I am missing you more and more every day. I never thought i would miss you this much. Until we meet again Tom I will never forget you and I will never stop missing you....

I wrote this for Tom.

Goodbye; Like The First Time

From the day we are born, we are adrift
When the cord is cut, we lose our tether to the dock
The first breath we take fills up our sails
Speeding over the currents we ride, hanging on for dear life;
Bouncing through the problems men face
Rough waves rattling the teeth in our head,
wind tearing at our face and hair,
Sorrow making us lost like a magnet in a compass
We are as helpless as if we were
kittens in a leaking bucket

But he;
he had wings, speeding over the choppy waters of life
Scooping up sodden wretches as he flew
Borne upwards, held by love above the whirling mess
His arms could hold a dozen men,
His heart could bear the pain of all;
It's not everyone who makes a career of rescuing:
Most of us are content to try to save ourselves...

Tommy was one of a kind. Truly an example of "The mold was broken after him". I will always hold dear his infectious laughter, his cheerful passionate spirit that brought such joy to those whom were so fortunate to know him. He truly was the light in the harbor often when it came to others. I met him at Anna's and will always cherish that night for what he said to a prospective boyfriend, or when he would bring me oil when I shouted at him on the street that I was out! Yes, he was and example of what loving others, friendship, goodness and humbleness truly means. I am going to miss you so much!
And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. For my Father's will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. ~ John 6:39-40

Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going. ~ John 14:1-4

I am not sure when Tom came into our lives..he has just always been there and shall never leave.His relentless passion for life and what he did and how he treated people should be a guide for all.Remember always that he touched so many people and will be missed beyond belief.
