Dear Mommy and Daddy

I'm in Heaven now. I'm really sorry I left you so soon. I wish I could have stayed longer. Tell Tabitha, Mary, Patrick, and Nichole that I miss them and love them very much. Just because I'm gone doesn't mean I'm not here. I am with all of you everyday. There's a little piece of me in each of you. You are my family, I am your son. Nothing will ever change that. I know it hurts and that you are sad. But life goes on. This will make you stronger. This will make everyone closer. When today is over, I want you to be happy. I want you to celebrate my life, not mourn my death. Be happy. Be strong. You need each other now. I love you mommy and daddy, please don't be sad anymore.

Your son always and forever,

Thomas

P.S. Tell Paul that Sarah is here and we will always be in your hearts.
