To My Husband:

Today I sit here and think about our life together and realize how much I cherish the short time we had. I think about how you take those little things in life for granted until it is gone from you. I wish I could tell you how much I miss your smile and touch!
I try each and every day to get through it without your smirkisk smile, the touch of you, and that morning phone call asking me "Did I tell you today how much I love you", but I never seem to get through the day without aching and missing you more and more... then comes the night waiting for you to come through the door...!
How I pray everyday for things to be different! I always thought we would grow old together, but that is something else I took for granted....
There is four things that gets me through the day without you and it is Heather, Thomas, and Brittany, and that you will be forever happy where you are.
All I ever wanted was for you to be happy for the rest of your life and I know you are today and forever.

"Did I tell you today how much I love you?"

With all my love,

My last conversation with Tom was the evening of September 10th in the parking lot of our complex. We talked about the success of his softball team, and we talked about the death of one of our neighbors just days earlier, and how young she had been. We talked about the sympathy we shared for this neighbors son, who was only in High School. Little did we know what would transpire the next day. I wish I had urged him to stay home from work the next day, I will always regret it.

Tom was always full of life, from his love of sports, to his love of his family and friends, to his love for a budweiser, bottle, not draft! When he laughed, it was contagious, and you always walked away from him with a smile on your face. He had a large heart and shared it with all of us. He was the life of the party. He spoke his mind. He never altered who he was, he was always Tom Dowd. I will miss the summer vacations, the barbeques, the "rides" to the "store", the commuting to work in the morning, his insults, the trips after work to Scranton and Albany for AAU basketball games, and so much more.

My life, and my family's life will never be the same again. We are all better people for having known him and isn't that the true measurment of whether someone has had a fullfilling life or not. Did they make a difference? Tom certainly did. We miss you.

I grew up around the cornor from Tommy. I lived at 248 Sherman Avenue. There were a bunch of us O'Briens as well as the Dowds.

When I married in 1974 I asked for Brian McCarthy and Tommy Dowd to be my Alter Servers. My wedding pictures bring back alot of memories of Tommy and his family from Isham Street.

I pray for his family and will always remember Tommy and the rest of the Dowds.
