Just wanted to say how sorry I am for your loss of Thomas. Please know that God promises a time when he will "swallow up death forever...He will wipe away the tears from all faces." (Isaiah 25:8). I look forward to a time when I can meet him in person in God's paradise, whole in mind and body the way He intended. Many thoughts and prayers for all who mourn Thomas. In the meantime, hoping this video brings you comfort and peace.
