Soldier's Wish gave TJ's mom an iPad Thursday and TJ got a Power Wheels jeep and a trampoline. Tony Potter's wife Emily was pregnant with TJ when Tony was killed. She says she really appreciates the support that she's getting.

"We wouldn't be able to get all these things for him and maybe one or the other, but not all of it. It really just shows how much people care," said Emily Potter. 

Emily remembers her husband as a caring man who was excited to be a father.
