Thank you Thomas

Thomas was a quiet, reserved young man as I recall. I wish I had known him better. Should a family member read this.. I want you to know I have often thought of Thomas. I went to the Moving Wall in Raleigh, N.C. and found his name on it. I've thought of the loss to his family. I'll always have him in my heart.
Thank You
