    I am so sorry to hear about the loss of Thomas. I can’t even comprehend the pain you must be feeling right now. I hope that the only peace that God can provide surrounds you during this difficult time. Unfortunately Thomas and I lost communication after high school but I can not express the impact he made on my life. I still smile when I think back about how goofy Thomas always was and he always had me laughing on the roughest of days. Occasionally he would send me a random message about something silly after high school and I always looked forward to that. I wish I could have been there to celebrate the person that was Thomas.

    Kathy and Roger,
    We extend our deepest sympathy to you, Amanda, Steven, family, and friends on Thomas’ death. What sadness and sorrow you must feel. I was Thomas’ second grade assistant at CTKS and it was a joy to see him accomplish so much even then. It is apparent he became a wonderful young man. Please know you are all in our prayers, and that God will comfort you with His peace.
