Thank you for being in my life. I will never forget our long talks and the good times we had together. Everything I know in my life is because of you. You were my superhero, you were my everything. You're a true leader that will be talked about forever. I can only hope that others will follow in the footprints that you've left behind to lead them to greatness. Kelley and I love you pop, and will never forget you.
Your son,
Tommy (TJ)
