– family statement
Our son Thomas was a brave young soldier, who is loved by his family, girlfriend and friends.
We can’t believe you have been taken so soon from us. You will always be in our hearts for ever and ever.
You would light up the room with your smile and bubbly personality. Our world will be a duller place without you.
We are so proud of you son, on all you achieved and we are grateful for every special thing you gave us. We will always love you Tom.
