My Story

Thomas was a very wise young man for a 14 year old. He was crazy about his niece. Loved his big brother, his friends and his music. His dream was to be a pilot someday. Thomas had a few flying adventures but that only added to his dream. Never letting cancer dim that dream of being a pilot. His other dream was to have a band, which he did with his friends. They called themselves "Revenge of the Awesome". Thomas wrote a song called "WAIT" while in the hospital. Actually he was waiting for radiation when he wrote it. His friend Robin co-wrote the music with Thomas. It was a collaboration of love for their music. A collaboration of Love that stays with us since Thomas has passed. He is always in our hearts and forever in our thoughts. He will be sadly missed, but we carry on the way Thomas did, with courage and lots of strength. And a smile. He always had a crooked little grin waiting for everyone. We Love You Thomas.
