I thought it was all a dream the next morning when i woke up but the first person face to me it wasnt a dream. I just wanted to go back to bed and pray so hard to god to make this be all a bad dream. That when i wake up this time i can pick up the phone and call him and not mention the horrible dream i just had and to tell him how much i loved to just talk to him on the phone and even more spend time with him. Most off us take it for granted that we will have those words to say to our loved ones tommorow but in a second tommorow may not come and the words can not be said so everyday when u wake up and b4 u go to bed tell them how much you love and care for them dont let them words go unspoken. I no then they tell me time will heal my pain there trying to help me but its not true time only makes it harder another day without my buddy my best freind my cousin so how can time heal it only makes it harder for i think what would he be doing right now would he like this new song that just came out would we be fishing on this nice hot day or would we just be sitting in the yard talking about the good old times or would we be just on the phone so my answer would be time will never heal my pain becouse i lost my best friend my buddy my cousin and all the things that would of should of could of been and it only gets harder thinking of those days i no youll only mean well by saying time will heal your pain but please dont say those workds to me becouse thats all the more pain and heart ache i have to relive in my mind day after day there would only be 1 thing that could heal my very broken heart and that is if only i could have my buddy my best friend my cuz back. I cant put it in any words how much my heart is broken and will never be the same without my best friend my buddy my cousin my world it fell apart the day he was called home.i love you tj

During the 7 years I was at the Melrose-Mindoro High School, there were 3 or more Koss's, Danny Kirchner and Tom Storandt. The kids during my time there were wonderful - even 8th hr Study hall, which I supervised during those 7 years. It hurts to consider that you parents - the kids we loved as students and friends have now suffered so great a loss. Ron Knappen
From Ron and mary Knappen

From The Hammes Family

My thoughts are with my extended family during this tragic time. He is Gone (author unknown) We can shed tears because he is gone, Or we can smile because he lived. We can close our eyes and pray that he will come back, Or we can open our eyes and see all those lives he has touched. Our hearts can be seem empty because we can no longer see him, Or we can fill our hearts with the love that he left with us. We can turn our backs on tomorrow and live for yesterday, Or we can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday. We can remember him and only that he is gone, Or we can cherish his memory and let it live on. We can cry and close our minds, be angry and wonder why? Or we can do what he would want: Smile, love, and don't let our lives pass us by. Those we love don't go away, They walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard, but always near, Still loved, still missed and very dear.
From Kitty and family

Dear Family, know that you are in my thoughts and Prayers everyday, My heart and Soul is with all of you through this terrible tragedy, Sending all my love......
From Sheila Russell (McConnell)

TJ (Cubby) was a very special person. He was a great friend, classmate, and more importantly family. Our thoughts and prayers are with his parents, friends, and family. Cubby will be truly missed by many of us.
From Casie (Cottone) Fry

We are friends of Casie Fry and just found out about this death today. Although we did not know your loved one, we know that if they were related to Casie, they must be people of character, integrity, and moral uprightness. We are praying for your family to have strength to overcome this unimaginable loss. We have recently lost a 10 week old daughter, and our hearts are broken at the thought of losing your child and friend. Please know that Jesus is never far from those with broken hearts when they seek Him in prayer. Hold on to the hope given to each of us in Christ Jesus and you will see your loved ones again. There will be no pain, no loss, and no sorrow at that happy reunion, and we will meet and never part again. God bless you, David & Leah Stratton

From Patricia and Rod Stetzer

My Dearest Family. May you have comfort in knowing T.J. is in a much better place. God has a new Angle in Heaven now to watch over you. We Love You All and words can not show our sorrow in this grief filled time. We are here for you if you need anything.
From Pam and Connor Olson
