Tommy was the like a father to me, I wish I could’ve been there. I love him & will miss him. And for those of you that don’t know, I lost my aunt Debbie going 2 years ago on Mother’s Day. My uncle Tommy was her world and now they can be together…. Thank you Jamie & Andy for being there & as for anyone else that may have also been.

I didn’t get to see you be for you left,
Didn’t get to say my good bye’s,
didn’t get to hug you & kiss you good night, didn’t get to tell you how much I was proud to have you as a father figure in my life.
Realization has finally hit.
And now with my pain I sit.
Tell me how to handle this
All I can do is reminisce.
I wish to hear your voice.
For us to rejoice.
The nightmare is real.
My wounds they did not heal.
Now that I come to understand
You had someone (Jamie) there to hold your hand…
I wish for just a hug, a glance
Perhaps another chance.
and I wont get the chance to say I love you one more time.
I wish I could have those chances,
but I am glad to have had the chance of having a uncle like you.
Thank you Dad!
