Thomas was 4 months, 10 days old when he died.
This letter was written by Paul, a close family friend, and read at Thomas' funeral.
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,
P.S. Tell Paul that Sarah is here and we will always be in your hearts.
