TJ I miss you and love you so much you were the best friend I could ever ask for. You were always there for me and listened to my problems and gave me advice. We had so many good times together and memories ill keep in my heart forever. I miss your crazyness and how you always found even the slightest positive in a negative situation you made it funny and we would just end up laughing about it. Cash misses you too and so do my parents. Rest In Peace TJ I'll never forget you.

I remember the first wrestling match we attended with the Flower Mound Wrestling team with our son Jon. TJ walked up to me, welcomed us and just started chatting about the team and the competition. He was always friendly, smiling, polite and we began to look forward to running into him at matches. TJ was also a good friend of our son Jon and will be missed very much.

nancy, stanley, and thomas...i never got the chance to meet TJ, but i felt like i knew him because nancy would sit in my chair getting her hair done and tell me what a good kid he was. he was her baby! words can not express how sorry i am for your loss. just know that you are in my thoughts during this difficult time!

Posted by brandy shacklette - the colony, TX   October 12, 2009

You know, we loved TJ. He was just one of those kids you look at and smile. From the little skinny kid with the big glasses who sat in the stands doing his homework while big brother was out on the field - playing baseball, football...to the big personable athlete on the wrestling team TJ was one of a kind. ALWAYS had a smile. ALWAYS had a hug. And he still makes us smile! We think of him even now and the memories we have are warm and wonderful.
We are truly heartbroken that TJ had to leave this world so soon. And we are heartbroken for Nancy, Stan, and Thomas. You are in our thoughts always, as is that little skinny kid with the big glasses who makes us smile.

Tj was a hilarious person who had a crazy love
for ketchup, sometimes he would know he put
to much but wouldn't want people to think he
couldn't eat that much and just bear through it.
He had a goofy smile that would just made you laugh
and make your day better, he was a great person
and I am a better person for having known him.
He taught us all to live life to the fullest and never
have regrets, I will take the lesson with me to every
walk of life. I love you Tj, and I will forever miss you.

My son lived in the same apartment building with TJ. He said TJ was the first person he made friends with when he moved to Florida. From my understanding he was liked by everyone, and was a very good kid. I am so very sorry for your loss. It was a senseless tragedy, I will keep you in my prayers.

Posted by Shirley    October 11, 2009


TJ was one of the first who came up to us when we moved here and we stayed in touch since then. He also invited us to go to a restaurant with him and all of his new friends here on his birthday. He always had a smile on his face and he once told me that he just always wants everyone to have a good time.

Unfortunately we have not met as often as we planned to For example last Friday (October 2nd) we wanted to hang out in the afternoon, but then he was really busy with running errands. Later that day we wanted to hang out at a restaurant but could not agree to which we want to go so we did not hang out again. On Saturday he then apologized for the misunderstanding at the summer bash pool party.

The last message I got from him on Sunday evening said :
TJ Pemberton October 4 at 8:08pm
Right on yeah it was pretty fun. We keep running into complications lol soon we should chill for real.

I replied:
"yeah..somehow it seems to be really complicated and almost impossible to meet..." and unfortunately it will now be forever impossible to meet him again.

I wish I would have had the chance to hang out more with him and to get to know him better. From reading his facebook wall I can only imagine how many people cared about him and I think he can be proud to have had so many amazing friends.

He will forever be in our hearts.

Stanley, Nancy, and Thomas,
You are in my prayers and thoughts. Although I have not seen TJ for years. I can remember him running through his Grandma's house chasing after one of his cousins. He was a wonderful little boy and I am sure he had grown into a wonderful young man. I can not express how sorry I am that you have to go through this. I can only pray that God gives you strength and the peace that one day you will see your beautiful son again. God Bless you.

Nancy, Stan and Thomas:
We are so sorry for your loss. TJ was a great friend to Ryan and I will never forget him being there when Ryan was rushed to the hospital. His smile always lit up a room. Our lives are all better for having known TJ and he will live on forever in our memories. No one can take those away from us. Nancy , I always laugh when I think of us making that early morning trip to Lake Ray Roberts to pick TJ up from his 1st camping trip because he was sick.Every memory is so precious. If there is anything we can do, please don't hesitate to call. TJ- rest in peace- Heaven has a new angel.

Posted by Shelley and Ryan LeRoy - Flower Mound, TX   October 11, 2009


T.J. was my neighbor, my friend. I will never forget the first or last time I saw him. The day he moved in I was walking my dog, who ran up to him barking, and he was like "whats up lil man" , "Hey girl" lol Those are ringing words in my ear. Any time I was sad or needed to talk or was just bored, he was always there. I miss you and promise you justice. I'll never let this go... I love you

Nancy and family... it truly breaks my heart to know you have lost your son. Words can never express the true depth of sadness and loss you are experiencing... nor can they ever offer a reason why those so special are taken away too soon. So, in this difficult time, know that you can find some joy in the love you shared with TJ and the memories of him that will never be taken from you. None of us knows how long we have to share on this earth, so times like this always remind us how important life is and to cherish every moment with those we love. TJ will live on forever in your hearts and in the memories of him you will all share for the rest of your lives. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. There are too many memories of TJ to list.

His wonderful smile will always be a sweet memory for us all.
All our love
