I'm so grateful to have met Thomas and to have been able to share the last 16 months with him. I will forever cherish his optimistic views and the push he always gave me. He encourages me now to win the war. My deepest and most thoughtful prayers are said for his family and friends who already miss him dearly.

Thomas- thank you for everything you did for me and will continue to do for me. I love you so much <3 I know you're in heaven smiling down, singing loud and proud, and that's what I'll smile about today. Everyday you asked me if you told me how beautiful I am, and I can only say that now I am so blessed that you did...

I would like to express my condolences at this time to Thomas' family. The Bible is a great source of encouragement at a time like this. A comforting thought is at Revelation 21:3,4 where it states "and he will wipe out every teat from their eyes and death will be no more neither will pain nor outcry be anymore the former things have past away." This scripture gives us hope for the future! May Jehovah God bring you comfort and peace during this difficult time. For more encouraging thoughts, go to jw.org

I am so sad to hear the news of Thomas' passing. I am so grateful to had the opportunity to be friends with him. I always remember him playing his guitar and singing (something I could never do, even though he tried to teach me). He always expressed his love for his family and always treated his siblings well. We had so much fun with all our friends at prom and I will never forget the time we got to spend together. I pray that the lord will provide comfort to your family at this time. I love your family and wish we could be there to tell you in person! With Love!

Sending your family our love during this tragic time. What a great guy Thomas was! I feel so blessed to have such sweet memories with him. I will always remember how well he played the guitar and how I could never learn even though he tried many times to teach me. He talked so much about his family and I could tell the love he had for his siblings. We always had a good time whenever we were together especially at prom, such a great group of people that night. I love your family and feel so heartbroken to hear of this news. Wish we could be there to tell you all in person. Hope you all feel the love everyone has for your family. With great Love

CAROL and Anna,
We are blessed to know you and miss being at church services with you each week. The last verse of "I Am A Child of God" says "I Am a child of God. His promises are sure; celestial glory shall be mine if I can but endure" we love you and thank you for your sweet testimony that you shared often. I know you will receive the Lord's choicest blessings at this time of trial and sorrow.
Much love,
