so odd to sit back and think that wow it has really been 4 years.
I am so sad that you haven't gotten to be here to see this beautiful baby boy grow up... Thomas started pre school like 3 weeks ago HE LOVES IT and is doing so well. We miss being so far away from home but hope everyone knows how much we miss them and are sorry we couldn't be there today.will put flowers on your grave for me six peach roses... They looked beautiful. I hope you are having a blast up there I know if you could choose you would be here raising your little guy. TIll we meet again someday missing you always!
Today/ Erin Morehead (family friend )
I just been thinking.......today it's been a year since Alice passed away..... It's so hard...... Tommy you are lucky to be so loved. That really shows what kind of person you were. Kristen- I hope you are doing well. Especially with that little boy of yours. Mike-the door may be closed but there will always be love behind it, you sack of wine! LOL I hope your good too.
There are only 3 choices in life. Give up, give in, or give it all you got. And Tommy, that is what you did! You gave it all you got, all the time and that will always count for something!!!! God Bless! Close
DEAR TOMMY, / ROSE GRMA TO ANGEL BRITTANY SYFERT Read >>
Two years wow... how is that possible it seems like just yesterday you were here with us making us laugh..... I never thought I could hurt this bad.... You were so full of life nothing coukd get you down and if it did I would be right there to bring you back up... together we made things happen.. nothing stood in our way... Our baby boy looks just like you.... Our little thomas... Every time he sees your pic on the computer he kisses the screen.... like it's normal.. he knows where to find his daddy. So many goals in life and too little time to get them all done... your life was deffinently cut way too short... I see people that walk away from their families or stupid stuff like that and I think do you know how many people never get the chance to have a family, to get married, to be there for the birth of their children or to see them grow up.... IT MAKES ME SO ANGRY!!! NO one realizes how precious life is how at the end of the day there is nothing better then comeing home to the people you love the most.... You changed my life forever I don't think I could have gotten through losing you without you making me such a tough person.... lol and the wonderful gift you gave me... Our son is the light of my life! without him I don't know where I would be.. I called your dad the other day I still havent heard back from him??? WHo knows... Gramdma and grandpa are doing well. mike just moved in with his girlfriend.... brad and shellie are married so are jason and dez.... as for me tyler, ryan, eric, and gabe we are the same lol Everyone gets their chance at happiness and I'm sure those boys will find it someday.... as for me I don't know if I will ever get past this.... everyone says I'm young and I will find love... who knows maybe there is only one true love... I'm ok with that I can love you forever till we meet again... Well I miss you SO much... I love you and We think of you and talk about you all the time!!!! LOVE YOU BABY! Love always and forever Kristin and thomas Close
new company / Erin Morehead (friend)
Hey Tommy, I just wanted to say hi to you. My Aunt Alice just passed away from an over-dose and I wanted to create a memorial website for her, I got to thinking about you and thought I would post on here for the first time. She was my very best friend, she was always there for me, she always had my back when I kept making bone head decisions (especially about my love life!) except for when I decided to get married to the greatest man there is. She was there when my twins were in the hospital. At her funeral I told her to look you up, she needed someone to party with when she got there. Please show her the ropes, like you-she was taken way to soon. Tell Kristen to post some pics of Thomas and help your brother Mike find happiness and contentment in whatever he is trying to find, and let him know when he has found it!! I named one of my newborn daughters after Alice before she died and she never got to hold her or see her. I know you and her are looking out for the babies that you two never met. Close

Wedding for Brad and Shellie / Kristin (Fiance) Hey sweetie
Brad and shellies wedding was saturday!! it was beautiful! The only problem is that they were a grooms man short... I watched as all of your closest guys stand at the front of a building to be there for Brad and I couldn't help but be so sad... I know life is full of so many changes but damn why did it have to be us... Our life our Family was just beginning and it's just not fair!!! I know you were there in spirit but I wanted you there to hold me I wanted you there to make everyone laugh with your silly dancing, your off the wall comments. but most of all you saying Kristin thats gonna be us someday... Just think how crazy our wedding will be lol I can't even recall all the times we talked about it... I'm guessing you came to visit us this morning lol chasing thomas around the bed he laughes and laughed for like ten minutes trying to get away from something lol I know it was you... I still feel you in bed a lot when I fall asleep... 2 years is coming up and I still remember the last conversation we had and honey I am so0 sorry I will never forgive myself... Of all the things I tried to help you understand the most inportant being love and the power of it... I didn't even say it... and I'm sorry that I didn't go looking for you that night I wanted you to have your time... but you know that wasn't me it was my job to watch over you and keep youy safe and I let you down.... I AM SO SORRY!!! But you know I love you more than anything ever. I Love you always and Forever!!!! *~Kristin~*Close

Its been awhile / Paige Drook (Friend)
It has been awhile since i have got on here and wrote you but i wanted you know that you are in my thoughts and you created an amazing baby boy I love Thomas more than anything. Tommy I really want you to watch over Kyle and I know you are, I know that your watching over all of them. Sometimes I wonder if things would have been different if you were here. If me and K would be as close as we are and would we have a friendship. Things are hard at times and I know I never got to meet you but I do think of you and I do think of your time here on earth. Well spread your wings and fly in the sky. Paige. Close

happy birthday lil brother / Mike Gates (brother)
just letting u know u will alway's be remembered and thought of. not a day goes by tommy that i don't think about or talk about u. half of my life now i just sit and remenise on the times we've had. they will never be topped. u were the greatest man and i still can't beleive ur gone sometimes. i think about the worst night in my life and i think about how thing's could've been differen't. what could have been done to prevent what happened. but i guess that's all in the past now. i just wanted to let u know u will alway's be missed and never forgotten and i dream of the day we are reunited. happy birthday tommy. i love u Close
I'm a mix of emotions today thinking about all the good times we've had- bowling, hanging out at my dad's house, cruising around in the Honda (it's still looking just as sweet as ever dude, you got my word on that). Or our whole crew packed into one room (or sometimes a closet) and having the time of our lives. You can still crack me up too- some of your most famous lines can never be forgotten- even on my shittiest days I can think of you calling Jade a "goof-dick" or you and Kristen and your misadventures in my closet (sorry Kristen) and I can't help but laugh.
So on your birthday It's hard not to think about all the good times that should have been. But at least we have our memories and the knowledge that you're always watching out for everybody in our crew. I'll see you later my dude. Happy Birthday Tommy.
thinking of you / Mike (brother/bestfriend)
word!!!!!! what's up my dude. how's thing's going up there? got to be better than what goes on around here. eric finally found him a decent woman, man i was starting to get worried about that man. i saw that new texas chainsaw massacre man that's crazy. man i sure do miss the time's we had but i guess we still have plenty of time for more when i get up there. shit i just don't want to wait that long. jan talked me into doing this thing with my space and damn i have never felt so computer illiterate in my life. she say's just do this and just do that but i'll be damned if i can get it to do anything. the kid's are getting big they talk about you all the time. kayla swear's you and her grandpa are sitten together eatin bean's and cornbread no matter how many time's i tell that's not really your kind of food. i got the start of a new tatoo of tom tom's initial's on my leg . like i said it's just a start it still need's alot of work. grandpa is killing me with all these home improvement's hell the house don't even look the same anymore. i went bowling with eric the other day after taking a three month vacation as you know and still broke out with some 200's. hell ya!!! well shit man i'm gonna get off here for now . check in on me from time to time . love ya . peace out my dude.

Lady and the Tramp is his favorite movie.... His favorite cartoons are blue's clues, the backyardagains, and the amazing wonder pets... He has a wonderful little personality!! I see so much of you in him! The little looks when he's doing somehing he shouldn't be, when he gives me kisses even when he lays in bed next to me! lol He is so wonderful and we are blessed to have such a wonderful son... I couldn't have made it through the past year and four months without him! But back to the point of today!!!
Happy Valentines Day to the love of my life!!!! I will never forget you!! you live on through your son.... Your memory lives on through all of us that love you we have so many wonderful thoughts/ stories!!

"Man I don't know, where the time goes But it sure goes fast, just like that We were wanna be rebels who didnt have a clue with our rock n' roll t- shirts, and our typically bad attitudes Had no excuses for the things that we'd done we were BRAVE, we were CRAZY, We were mostly young" Tommy you may be gone but you will never be forgotten! Things won't be the same without you! Know that you are love
