Tom's Retirement

Took up our whole chair
Tom has been retired with the Chesapeake Police Department "officially" since 2/26/10.  He got hurt on the job 11/07 and back surgery on 12/9/08 which ended up not working.  So his official diagnosis is failed back surgery.  Right now he can't work, because he can't stand, sit, walk, whatever for any length of time.  So right now, he's just doing therapy twice a week and just in pain the rest of the time (sometimes a pain..but that's another post...lol).

We had a retirement party for him back in August.  The City just had their retirement service on Thursday.  10 retiree's were being honored, but only 4 of them showed up.  From L-R is Tom, Officer Hood, Captain Spruill and Officer Jeeter.  Tom had a total of 17 years with the City of Chesapeake, 12 of them with the Police Dept.

They each received a HUGE plaque...now when I say huge, I mean huge!

I know this picture is blurry, but it shows you just how big it is
Here is the cake they served with all the retiree's names

 Here is a video of Lt. Farney reading Tom's bio before they introduced him and he went forward to get his plaque.
This is Tom and a great friend of the family Chaplain Russell Holland
