Your son's/brother's death has saddened and touched our family even though we did not know him personally. It is a tragedy that you will not be able to make more memories with Tom, but it sounds like he was a young man who provided you with sweet memories of his 18 years on earth. May those memories comfort and sustain you. We offer you our prayers and sympathy.

My thoughts and prayers began from the start of the missing persons report and continues at present . My granddaughter is the same age has moved from Mn to NC and even though she is with family I worry I don't think that ever stops. I pray to our Lord and savior that you will get some peace knowing he is in Jesus arms and is safe and happy as everyone says his oersonuty lit up the room. God be with you always
