You have my deepest condolences for your loss of Thomas. Death is truly an enemy of all of us. He seemed to have such a positive effect on so many. Our loving heavenly father Jehovah knows the pain you are in and has promised a resurrection soon to come. That promise can be found in the Bible book of Revelation in chapter 21 and verses 3,4.
