To write a few words to give you a glimpse into who my brother Tommy was,seems so impossible.He was so many things to so many people.He was such a big part of my children's life. He helped to raise them with my husband and myself. Their personalities are a bit of him and a bit of us. We as a team raised them to feel so loved and welcome. They adored him and couldnt wait to spend time together. When my son was taken from me I had the small comfort of knowing Tommy would see that he was safe crossing to the otherside. I imagined him "yelling at him..Why are you here so early?"but then enveloping him with open loving arms.How sad that the two special men in my life are both no longer alive. I do my best to keep him and my Cory alive in my heart everyday.

He was a gentleman and gentle soul.He was a mentor to so many and a student of life at the same time. When he talked to you he made you feel like you were the only person in the room. He made me feel safe from anything. Whenever he was in my presence I felt so protected,like no-one or nothing could harm me.I felt that whatever happened to me I could handle because he would fix it..He added so much to many lives. For me I know that I saw life in a more beautiful way,the colors were brighter and the smells more fragrant.I can't even just say that I miss him because it is so much more than just missing.I have felt "broken" since he passed and have felt so alone,but I try to keep him proud of me so I keep a positive attitude and when life gets hard I ask myself "What would Tommy say to me"and I hear him in my head.
I will always be so grateful to both god for giving me such a special and amazing brother and for Tommy for giving me such joy and love. I know he is always around so I continue to try my best to make him proud.
I love you Tommy...Thank you

Memory Apostol

Forever In Your Heart

When you speak of him
speak not with tears
for thoughts of him should not be sad.
Let memories of the times you shared give you comfort
for his life was rich because of you.
And though for now you had to part,
though to part he did not choose;
he'll be with you along life's path,
Forever In Your Heart.

Dearest Pecorelli family, I continue to keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

Thank you family and friends for all your love, prayers and support during this painful chapter in our lives. Thomas was one of the most wonderful humans ever put on this earth. His kindness and gentle spirit were like no other. We miss your big dimple when you smile. Watching the Red Sox and Patriots will never be the same.
I love and miss you Tommy- Natalee

Hello Angela and Marie,

Almost 3 years later, I found out that Tommy died on Flight 11. Natalee just told me today, July 30, 2004. I am so very sorry. I remember Tommy being such a nice kid, when he visited Arizona back in the early 80's.

We have never met, but I have met your Parents and Marie. I hope things are going well for all of you.

Hi Angela,

Been looking at all the sites dedicated to Tommy's memory and they are beautiful.

Thomas was my only brother. He brought more happiness and joy to our family in 30 years then anyone could imagine. Tommy was in the prime of his life.. expecting his first child he so wanted.. approaching his 2nd wedding anniversary, his career was booming. This devasting attack has taken away the best thing that ever happened to my family. Tommy your memories will last forever and I want to Thank You for the best 30 years of my life. I love you always and will never forget you. You are my gaurdian angel now. Thank you for watching over me still. As I look at photos and videos of you with a smile, something you were never without. May you Rest In Peace Tommy.. May God craddle you in HIS arms as you did to so many other people.. I cant say good bye Tommy.. I will say Good Nite.. sleep well little brother..
