Thomas was seeing my best friend Hayley at the end of his life. The bond that they had can't be broken. I'm so glad I met him, and for the impact that he has on her life. I can't stop smiling at the photo Hayley sent me of them together the night before he left us.

Mike, Sandee and Sarah, I'm so sorry that Thomas left your lives so early. I loved seeing the pictures of happier times you had fishing, biking, hunting, trap shooting and enjoying life together As a family. As God called Thomas as his own child in baptism, and as Thomas confirmed his faith later as a teen, I pray he is now resting high on that mountain. May God comfort you and give you His peace, now and in the days to come. Love to you!

Like Shelby said I remember your s10 and you letting me drive cause it was a five speed and playing call of duty and getting glo sticks for the weekend to spin around outside in the dark lol. I can only remember good times with you and all my close friends from school. You are missed and I’m sry I didn’t say something sooner. I believe you are a great person and you always did me right. I hate this has happened. I should be there with you also I pray heaven is how ever you need it to be. Rest In Peace brother

We really enjoyed our time shooting with Mike and Thomas recently. We will miss Thomas' happy countenance and kind personality. Our family is grieving with your family.

My favorite memory of us was riding around in your red truck just young and dumb trying to find something to do. We ended up going to the park and you were always a little shy but you opened up to me. We sat for hours and hours and talked. I remember you being such a gentleman opening my door for me. You were just so smart and sweet. I wish we could rewind back to that day and spend a little more time with you. You were also a smartass lol but I loved it! Just a couple days ago we were talking about your thick eyebrows haha! I’m going to miss the talks we had, the time we spent and I’m going to miss you just being here. I pray for your family as I know they are struggling with your passing. Your an angel now and I can’t wait to see you again! Tell everyone in Heaven I said Hello and I miss them too! I love you Thomas ♥️
