Thomas wished that all who knew and loved him would honor his memory by attending a sporting event with someone they love.<br><br>Flowers and other material tributes are gratefully declined. In keeping with his passion, memorial donations for Thomas may be made to KidSport, an organization that seeks to remove financial barriers for all kids who want to play.<br><br>“In tears we saw you sinking<br>We watched you fade away.<br>You faced your task with courage, <br>Your spirit did not bend<br>And still you kept on fighting <br>Until the very end.<br><br>God saw you getting tired,<br>When a cure was not to be.<br>So he put his arms around you <br>And he whispered “Come with Me.”<br>So when we saw you sleeping,<br>So peaceful, free from pain,<br>We could not wish you back<br>To suffer that again.”<br></div>
