September 8, 1956 - March 13, 2006
My dear Uncle T. You meant everything to me. You never had children so I was the closest thing to a daughter for you. Your co-workers told me you talked about me all the time. I was so proud of you at my wedding..the handsomest uncle any girl ever had! Chris loved you as a uncle too. My mom and your parents are just wrecked that you have done this. You were loved so much! Your friends packed the funeral home so much they had to bring in extra chairs..the director remarked it was a good thing there were no other funerals that day..there would not have been room! Grown men stood at your casket and wept. Women confessed secret crushes they had on you! You loved Harleys so much and your casket just looked like your bike stretched out! (Mommy, your big sis, picked it out) WHY did you not tell us how much pain you were in?? We would have done anything for you!!!! You were planning on coming to see me on Thursday of that week. Do you know how much it hurt me that you did this on Monday of that week? I wanted to see you so much and now I never will. You didn't get to ride in my new red Mustang you were so excited about. I wanted to pay you back for all those rides on your Harley. We had so much fun! I hope you are at peace now and no longer in pain. You must have been in agony and we never knew. I am so sorry for whatever you were going through. We miss you so much. We will never get over the pain of losing you. You live on in our broken hearts. Say hello to Daddy for me. Love you always..Laura Ann
Picture taken September, 1991. It is not the most recent picture I have of you, but it is my favorite. This is how I want you to be remembered: young, handsome, full of life, and on the motorcycle you loved.
