Someone he touched greatly...

This is Truly a Great Loss..... TJ has been such an impact on so many lives..... He dealt with his own demons (like we all do) and he fought the fight and I truly believe he made amends with almost everything in his life and you could see the stress relieved off of him. You could look at TJ and see that the stress was finally off of his face and he ready for a new life and ready to move forward from his past. He didn't take compliments too well but deep down he knew that he was special and that he meant so much to so many. He loved his Boys and his Mom and Grandma... There wasn't a conversation that didn't involve them all. TJ didn't talk alot about God but I know for sure that his heart was right and he in now in Heaven where we will all see him again. He didn't preach religion, but through my many conversations with him, he was a believer and I am sure he is up there making those he has missed so much, his smiles and his love. If I know TJ he will make sure that all his loved ones knows that he is still with them. His Spirit will remain here, and he will remind all of us that he is here. He will send the signs, and he will make sure we are not alone through our troubled times ahead. And I know when we cross those gates, he will be standing there with that awnry smile... and he will say "Where in the heck ya all been?" :) TJ until then look over your Boys and Family and Give Heaven Some Hell until I get there... Thank You for all the Smiles, the Laughs and the Lessons... I will continue to keep your sayings going... and when I look to the Heavens and say "What's Up TJ." I will always be knowing your up there saying "A Ducks Ass...when it eats." God Bless You TJ and I am sorry I didn't know that Friday would be the last day I talked to you or I would have never hung up... With Tears in my eyes, and way more in my Heart... I say Farewell, but I know each day is one day closer to seeing your Funny Crazy Self again... Until then.... ;-)
