"I grew up with T.J. My name is Robert Allan Brown. The way I found out he was killed was my twin brother David Ray Brown was looking him up just so we could call him, kind of lost contact, then we saw on the internet that he had passed. T.J. was a great guy, one of the best friends I ever had and I hate that I never got the chance to tell him. I hate that I didnt try harder to stay in touch over the years. T.J went to the army, i went to the Air Force, he was all over, I was all over and just lost contact with one another. I have been trying hard to find out what happen to him and locate his mother and family, but have not been succeful. Anyone who reads this and has info please contact me at robertallanbrown@yahoo.com or robertbrown1023@yahoo.com"
