My deepest sympathy for Tommy's family. May Our Lord grant you the peace that only he can give.

My second day on the street i was involved in a foot chase and arrested a suspect. The suspect had a guitar that we tagged with Tommy who was working the property room. He shook the guitar and found a matchbox of marijuana. We had to go back to the station and do the report for the then felony narcotics charge. Tommy, of course, was listed as a witness and had to go to court. He never for the incident and neither did I. For my whole police career, every time we'd run into each other over the years, we'd harass each other about "shaking guitars".

He was a great guy and I know he'll be missed. You are all in our prayers.

M. D. Beale, Jr. Det./Sgt. Robbery Division, Ret. HPROA
