This prayer circle is in memory of Thomas W. Glenn Jr. Tommy was an intelligent, articulate, charming and good-hearted young man. His life ended short at the young age of 25. A true genius, the things he could have achieved if given the chance. On a cold Januay morning he passed away from "bad heroin". His family and loved ones miss him desperately and need prayers. Also, in honor of Tommy the prayers are being said for all of those suffering from the disease drug addiction, families dealing with addiction and loved ones of those who have passed on due to addiction. Tom was a conquerer, if this could beat him...it could beat anyone. Please help one another. Please Lord, give me the strength to continue to fight for this cause. God bless you.

WE LOVE YOU TOM!!!

Tom, you are in the Lords hands now and one day we will meet again For now, I pray for you all the peace and happiness in heaven.

JACKíS PRAYER

Hello Lord, its me again,
come to call and bend your ear,
with ever reverent finger crooked
and grateful heart to draw You near.

Thereís someone here beside me, Lord,
it seems escaped Your knowing eye.
A precious detail overlooked;
so small against Your giant sky.

A gentle man, a humble soul
who brings to life so very much;
a dreamer with the bluest eyes
and truest heart and healerís touch.

You may recall my last request,
when from the depths of my despair,
I asked if You could lift me up
and teach my heart again to care.

Well, please observe the smile I wear
and note the joyful heart inside,
the faith and trust that fill these rooms
where once my sadness chose to hide.

And notice too this gentle man,
whose comfort has this joy inspired.
I call attention with good cause.
It seems his faith is growing tired.

Assure him the virtues I describe,
are just exactly what they seem.
and with Your grace, his doubting soul
is truly worthy of his dream.

Comfort him where I cannot;
Confirm his dream is coming true.
Remind him gently he is loved
so much by me and more by You

I am a recovering addict and I too lost my way for a long time. I never thought I'd get straight. My prayers are with all addicts still suffering daily and their families. It's a horrible disease and ruins so many families. My husband also is a recovering alcoholic now sober for 16 years. We have both been blessed by the grace of God. My prayers are with Tommy and his family and all other suffeing addicts in the world. I have been clean for one year. I don't know why God chose me to get clean but whatever reason I am grateful. In rehab I meant so many wonderful people and many did not make it, one of them committed suicide cause he just could'nt get it, he really tried but could'nt get it. He left behind a wife and three children. How sad is that.My prayers are for Jim and his family. I pray that his family can deal with the pain of losing a loved one to addiction.
Praying for all addicts keeps me clean.
God bless everyone that has been affected by addiction.

Lord, grant that we may hold dear the memory of your servant, never bitter for what we have lost nor in regret of the past, but always in hope of the eternal kingdom where you will bring us together again. We ask this in the name of Jesus the Lord.
Amen.

Sometimes God picks the flower
That is still in full bloom;
Sometimes the rosebud's chosen
That we feel He's picked too soon.
Sometimes the flower is fading
With petals floating down,
But God knows the perfect time
To gather flowers from the ground.
There is a heavenly garden
In which God takes great pleasure
Because He's placed within it
The loved ones that we treasure.
He walks among the blossoms
Giving them eternal rest,
And I know that it must please Him
Because he choose our very best.

Very few people get the opportunity to know someone like Tommy. Someone who would sacrafice himself to help another. Others always came before himself. We all know his passing has left a huge hole in our hearts. We are lucky to have been touched by someone with such a beautiful heart. Unfortunately (to us) God decided that Tommy's job here on here was complete. Today, on the anniversay of his passing, it was proven for sure that his death was not in vain. Thanks to him, children have their mother back. A true martyr. Thanks to him and Renee, there is a place where families can come try to understand this disease or grieve for someone addiction stole. I thank God for bringing someone like Tommy into this world. He touched so many lives in such a positive way. Others can now learn from his experience. I have. Just another example of him helping another human being. Tom Glenn, Jr. is a beautiful person and I hope and pray that he passes his strength and positive attitude to as many people as possible. I know he is working just as hard in the afterlife as he did here on earth to better as many lives as he can. Thank you Tom. I pray for his immediate family that they may be able to fill the void in their lives with Tommy's incredible love, and that they may be able to go on with an angel on their shoulders named Tommy. I couldn't ask for a better one. I mainly pray for his cousin Renee. She has the same wonderful characteristics as Tommy. She has a hole in her heart greater than the grand canyon, which many people can not understand. An entire year of watching your best friend slip through you fingers is more painful than anything in the world. Few people understand her pain and I ask God and Tommy to give her the strength and peace of mind to have happy days and pass the message on to others. God bless all suffering from addiction as well as though dealinging with an addict or the passing of one. God bless all who read this and please keep hope and faith alive! All of my Love!

We are hurting, Dear Lord;
We ask you to listen
to the cry of our hearts.
Help us to accept all that you
permitted to happen. Console us with our tears. Strengthen our faith
and give us patience
to bear our troubles.
Visit us with your grace.
We leave all of our cares
to your wisdom, love,
understanding, compassion,
and goodness. Help us all in our time of need. Let your Love succeed. Amen

God bless Tommy's family and friends at such a sad time in their lives. It's obvious, from the letters written over the past year, that Tommy was a very special and unique young man who was loved tremendously. I pray for Jesus to wrap His loving arms around all those who grieve for Tommy and give them the comfort that only HE can give. Assure them, Jesus, that Tommy rests at peace in Your loving arms. Amen.

I canít believe that it has been a year since the last time any of us saw you.
I never would have thought or even tried to imagine that when we hung up the phone on 1/26/01, it would have been the last time I heard my Big Brother say I love you Lilí Sisí.
Your death has caused so much pain to so many. It is unbelievable still to this day that you are gone.
Everyone misses you dearly. Your niece and nephew ask about you all the time.
I know that you only shared a short period of time with them, but they have been here with me through all of this and it is obvious that they can see the pain that your death has caused us all.
Watching the two of them everyday reminds me so much of the two of us. I pray that you watch over them, My son definitely carries a lot of your ways he would make you smile.
I sat back last night after everyone went to sleep and just thought back on some of the times that we shared together and let me just say you were a crazy Big Broí! We had lots of fun, and you got me in a lot of trouble, HA!HA! It hurts to know that those times will now only continue in my memories. I wish that we could do it all again!
I hope that you know that no matter what you did, I always looked up to you.
I love you Tommy and I miss you very much!
Your Little Sister,
Kimmie

I would like to take some time to say a prayer for my parents, as a mother myself I canít imagine what they are going through.
From the day your child is born you do your best to protect them. Everyday that goes by from the first time that you look into their little eyes you pray that their lives would be better then your own. You never want to see your child be in pain or have hardships. The strength the two of them have is commending. Knowing their first born had fought against their every word of wisdom and spent most of his adult life living out what they both feared the most.
You devote your life to your child trying to teach them how to stay away from this very thing. So one day they grow up and you have to let them out into the world. You PRAY that your child will remember all the things you taught them, only to find out that the devils of the world have tugged and pulled at your child until no end, and laughed in your face while they did it. THAT is the most painful thing in the world. And I am at a lost for words to anyone who doesnít understand the pain that THEY feel everyday.
As the parents, no one knew him better, no one felt for him more or did more for him then the two of them, and no one is more hurt then they are.
So I pray that God continue to give them the strength that they need to deal with this pain that they face everyday. I pray that the love that they have for one another continues to grow and continues to help them fill the hole that is left in their hearts. God please grant them some peace and let them feel the love and understanding that people who truly do care have for them. God please comfort them in their time of need.

Please read this prayer, I love it very much and pray it daily.

LORD, MAKE ME AN INSTRUMENT OF YOUR PEACE; WHERE THERE IS HATRED, LET ME SOW LOVE: WHERE THERE IS INJURY,PARDON: WHERE THERE IS DOUBT,FATIH: WHERE THERE IS DESPAIR, HOPE: WHERE THERE IS DARKNESS, LIGHT: AND WHERE THERE IS SADNESS, JOY.

O DIVINE MASTER, GRANT THAT I MAY NOT SO MUCH SEEK TO BE CONSOLED AS TO CONSOLE: TO BE UNDERSTOOD AS TO UNDERSTAND: TO BE LOVED, AS TO LOVE: FOR IT IS IN GIVING THAT WE RECEIVE, IT IS IN PARDONING THAT WE ARE PARDONED, AND IT IS IN DYING THAT WE ARE BORN TO ETERNAL LIFE.

renee25 1/27/01, bonovox 1/27/01, kglenn
1/28/01. Each one described, beautiful the struggles of losing a love one. It is hardship times like these that can cloud ones perceptions. I myself have filled my window with white lights & angels with the Bless Mother. I've hanging a handsome picture of Tommy in my window, his name is done in calligraphy. His picture has Roses around him & a poem. I added a beautiful vase that I filled with red beads & one rose. I have a constant vigil of prayers in my heart going on. These prayers are not only for Tommy, but for his families & loved ones who have been torn apart. Let them appreciate each other & acknowledge it. Even if it just for Tommy. Please join me in my vigil of prayers for the healing in Tommy's families, love ones & friends. I like it to be a nine day novena. Thank you, & God bless each & everyone who has seek help & said prayers on this site.
In Jesus name we pray,
Amen

Hello, First of all I would like to thank the many people who prayed for and expressed such kind words for my son Tommy. My heart goes out to you, especially those of you who have or are now dealing with the heartache of addictions. The pain is unbelieveable and usaully the results are unbearable.
The heartache and pain can not be expressed in words as anyone who has been through this knows all to well. Although this is a prayer circle, I will not be starting with Dear God or quoting verses from the Bible because I am not a particularly religious man nor am I an anti-christ. However I am a man overwhelmed with grief and anger.
Grief: At the lost of my only son, whom I would have given my life for in a heartbeat. I was there when my son took his first breath of air, his first steps on his own, his first day of school. When he first started abusing drugs.(8 yrs.ago), when he first got involved with the police, and as much as it hurt I was there to say goodbye when he was put in jail. Twenty-five years of life, we lived through good times and bad times happy times and sad times. THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THIS IS WE DID THIS TOGETHER!!! Not only as Father and Son but also as friends. No matter what others may think or say they will never break this special bond. you may hurt my feelings, send me into perods of deep depression but my son's love and our special bond keeps pulling me up by my bootstraps to continue on and find out the truth of what really happened to my son.
Anger: At his so called friends who stole his belongings and his life, leaving him lying on the pavement to die instead of calling help. Those friends who are witholding the true facts of what happened. Making up stories, pointing fingers and placing blame anywhere they can just to distort the truth from coming to the surface. Using False grief as a shield to protect themselves from the guilt that is eating away at them. One day you will realize that the only way to free yourself from a lifetime of guilt and pain is to come forward with the truth. Whether you choose to tell me or you wait until you face God the truth will be revealed. In either case, you can not hurt me anymore than you already have by killing my son. I promise you, until the day I take my last breath I'll be searching for the truth. I'll be a constant reminder, I'll keep stirring up the guilt your trying to bury in the back of your mind.
In conclusion I would like to thank my wife, the mother of Tommy. Without her strenght, loving nature and devotion to family I would not have experienced those special times with my son. Also I would like to ask the people who do not the whole story surrounding my son's death, the lies being told, and the deceit of certain people to please forgive me for expressing myself on this prayer circle this way but it is my only format to reach certain people involved in my son's death and a way to release some of the rage that has consumed me. I am sure there are other people out there in the same situations, if you wish to release some of your rage, please do. I rather have you express your emotions here than see you act out of rage and hurt yourself and others that love you. Again for all of you who shared your kindness and prayers we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. THANK YOU
GOD BLESS
MR THOMAS GLENN

Gladyscotto , ERIC,
I want to ask Our Heavenly Father to guide Eric & his influences that surround him . His addition is one that only he can fully discard out of his blessed life in which you have given him our Lord. Redirect his thoughts towards the reality that there is a brighter healthier future in your presence that is drug free. Iam aware that the addition is strong & I ask that you Galdys & Eric give this to God. Put it in Gods hands , thats the best thing when one doesn't know how to fix or deal with something. Dear Lord , Take these issues please from the worries of those here I place the issue at hand in your hands . I thank you God amen. I pray for your recovery ERIC. Take care , God Bless You. Amen

Dear God, I praise & thank you for my family. Please help Tommy's Father from pointing his fingers at the wrong people. Please stop him accusing Tommy's loved ones of sticking him in the arm with a needle, stealing from him, & pull him out of a car & on the pavement to die. Let him see that people will rob you if you're alive in that area. Please let him know that he is not the only one who was close to Tommy. Let him know who was the only one who sent Tommy a birthday card when he was in jail. Let him know the time & energy put in making a collage only to be critized that someone picture was excluded. Pictures that she did not have. The time spent to make a prayer circle to only have it desecrated by families members. No Thanks, for your help. Please let him know that certain people accused his family (brother)of not wanting to be their at his time of need. Which was not true. Please let him know we all understand his grief, it's his anger that is being blame on the wrong people that are upsetting & causing depression & grief for others. I pray very hard for you to find the truth. I know that what you think is true is not. I've repeat forgiving you over & over for the lies that have been said. I pray that you come to your senses & realize you are blaming the wrong people. I pray that you realize that if anyone is to be blame it is the drug dealers & Rehab. facilities as well as the insurance company who do not allow the treatment time needed to completely clean your system out.
I suggest that you do say prayers to help you rid yourself of anger & let the Holy Spirit comfort you & your family. In Jesus name we pray,
Amen
