    This is my Uncle Thomas. And I loved him and thought the world of him from as far back as I can remember. He was always smart, witty, kind, goofy, mischievous, and infuriating. It is hard to pick a few memories to share that sum up the lifetime of memories I have of him. Here is what I know.
    My dad and him were never under any circumstance allowed to be on the same Pictionary or charades team because they were of one mind. One of them could draw a single line and the other would get the answer immediately. He played to win and did it with gusto.
    His favorite story to tell about me was when he spent Christmas with us when I was little. I had a habit of waking up and running to my parents’ room in the middle of the night. So, he decided to rearrange the furniture in the living room to make me run into everything to entertain himself while sleeping on the couch. I apparently hit every piece of furniture on my way while he watched (holding back laughter) until I made it. Mission accomplished.
    My favorite story is about the time I tricked him into buying my Surge and candy before we went into the Marianna Caverns. I convinced him that my mom bought me the high sugar content Surge drink (now banned) all the time. I was so jacked up on sugar in the caverns I was speeding past the tour guide and could hardly be contained. He did not know what to do with me.
    He stood out in my family of uncles for his artistic ability and culinary prowess. I specifically remember not letting him color on one of my drawings as I child and my mom telling me how good he was. So, he got his own page and showed me out. Lesson learned. I also remember all of his fun cooking gadgets and recipes he was trying and perfecting. The tabletop distiller is one I still think about.
    The list goes on with memories but how to you write them all in a tribute for anyone to read. I will remember him fondly as my Uncle Thomas that was there for so many of my important life moments. I wish we could have had more. I love him with every fiber of my being and I know he feels it.

    You weren’t an easy person for me to befriend, mainly because we were both so bull headed and stood strong in our difference of opinions. But I am so thankful we were able to work past that and am honored to have been one of your friends. I will miss our talks and your smile and laughter. And I will miss the totally corny jokes we would all tell each other that sometimes went over my head, but I laughed anyway.

    My prayers go out to the entire family. My loss is a fraction of what yall lost. Thank you for sharing him with me for the brief few years I knew him.

    What a loss to the world. Thomas is an exceptional person. He is an artist, a mechanic, an electrical/technical guy, and an all-around fun person to know. He was a funny little brother whom I will miss a lot. May you find laughter, fun, love, and interesting things on your next journey.

    What a most special person God gave to us to have and hold in our hearts – our dear Thomas. There are not enough words to express how wonderful his life was with us or how sad we are now. I just know that I/we are most honored to be a part of Thomas’ journey. We will continue to love you dear brother with all of our hearts. And we will celebrate your life with all of us. There are countless joyous memories, stories and laughter that we will share and that will keep us until we embrace again . . .

    My Uncle Thomas was always the most fun spirited, artistic, culinary genius, entertaining and smartest of all my uncles. Family gatherings did not start until Uncle Thomas arrived. Whether it was building gingerbread houses just to blow them up with fireworks on New Years Eve, or learning how to cook pão de queijo to make my fiancé from Brazil feel welcome at Thanksgiving. My Uncle Thomas is not gone. He has just been scattered into so many wonderful memories. You were so loved and I will see you on the next journey.
