    Thomas, All I can think of is the shy little boy sitting in the grass grinning from ear to ear at the thought of taking care of our babies(dogs) while we were out of town. My trust was placed in your hands and you never failed to exceed my expectations. Not then and not as you matured through the years. The way you loved from your heart, the way you cared for the four legged critters was a pleasure to watch, and your interactions with us humans was a blessing. You never spoke one word of disrespect to me and were always loving and caring. I watched you mature over the years and accept responsibility, and as you returned from Charlotte I watched you transform into a fine young man. A young man who I will miss out in the farm yard, I will miss harrassing you, and the endless kodak moments. Your smile will remain a light in my heart forever.
