    Obviously and very unfortunately, life is so very fragile, and so, so very short. Losing someone that you care deeply about is devastating. However, you must give thanks that he/she was your friend and has made such an impact and difference in your life! Death is so very permanent and is so very devastating! We must try to remember to be thankful for the times that we had with Tommy and that we were able to spend quality time with Tommy, that was such a wonderful guy!
