"I thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new, I thought about you yesterday and days before that too. I think of you in silence, I often speak your name, All I have are memories and your picture in a frame. Your memory is my keepsake, with which I'll never part. God has you in His keeping, I have you in my heart."
Best Picture Ever

our dearest son and only child.
Christopher Neil Thomas(Big Thomas)
who was born in Tupelo, Mississippi on September12,1989 the happiest day of my life....But on November 19,2005 a parents worse nightmare came true for me.Is a day that will forever haunt me and the worst day of my life. Its the day a wonderful person was taken from us all. Not a day or minute goes by that I don't think of my wonderful son who I only had for 16 yrs. and I wouldn't change those 16 years for anything. It is better to have had that 16 years and to hurt like I do than to have never had it at all. No one knows why but will forever wonder what happened that day on that stretch of highway and why he was taken. Christopher was a wonderful son, grandson,cousin,friend to everyone. He never met a stanger and would help anyone. He loved his family, church, his friends, football and his last love the Okolona Fire Dept. Those guys are simply the best anyone could ask for. Christopher had such a way about him that no one can touch or tarnish. I always new he was special but the after effects of this has been just overwhelming to me. I never knew one person so young could affect so many people from so many places. That shows me that he was indeed an angel while he was here with us and now a true angle with wings of gold just like his heart. I will forver miss him and long to see him and hear that silly laugh of his that would make anyone smile. And lets don't forget when he would say "raise your hand before you talk to grown folks" I love you son and just keep up that good angel work that I know you have mastered. After all you mastered that while you were here so that job must be easy for you. I love you.
Somethings Never Change
Somethings never change
like how much I love you and miss you.
I think of you everyday I can't help but to.
You left such a void in my
life that I know will never be filled.
As much as I try to go on somehow
I'm stuck and can't.
Somethings never change
like how my heart breaks each and everyday
that I am not with you. You have my heart now
and no one will ever have it but you.
Somethings never change
I love you Christopher so so so much.
Not a day goes by that I don't wish I could see you
touch you, hear you all those things that were taken
so sudden without a good-bye. Wouldn't have
made it any better though because you still would be gone.
Some things never change
A broken heart will never mend and mind sure won't
I love you Baby, I miss you
Love 4 ever and ever
A new cross goes up.

The Cross the fire department put up at the wreck site.
Your smile will forever be in my heart and mind to remind me of the so very special person you were and will always bring a smile to my face just thinking of you,even though my heart is still breaking each and everyday that you are not here. You did have a heart of gold and was an angel on earth and I now really believe that to be true.
I LOVE YOU
Christopher and Melanie Homecoming
Christopher,Melanie and Patsy Don't know about this look
Very few of us together!!!!!
Below is what is on the plaque which hangs in the
Okolona Fire Department.
Brother when you weep for me
Remember that it was meant to be
Lay me down and when you leave
Remember I'll be at your sleeve
In every dark and choking hall
I'll be there as you slowly crawl
On every roof in driving snow
I'll hold your coat and you will know
In cellars hot with searing heat
At windows where a gate you meet
In closets where young children hide
You know I'll be there at your side
The House from which I now respond
Is overstaffed with heroes gone
Men who answered one last bell
Did the job and did it well
As firemen we understand
That death's a card dealt in our hand
A card we hope we never play
But one we hold there anyway
That card is something we ignore
As we crawl across a weakened floor
For we know that we're the only prayer
For anyone that might be there
So remember as you wipe your tears
The joy I knew throughout the years
As I did the job I loved to do
I pray that thought will see you through.
I'd give anything just to be the tin man And I wouldn't have a heart and I wouldn't need a soul you could hurt me all you want. and I wouldnt feel a thing If I didn't have a heart, I wouldn't miss you so much But I do so much
I LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU!!!!!!
Sending you my love
A rose for you.
In Action in red #74
I love you forever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I would just like to say that I am so honored and touched that my son is still touching lives a year later. I knew he was special but not in my wildest dreams would I have thought he would make such an impact on so many. This is truely amazing to me and as he was special to me and my world I am honored to share him. I hope all enjoy this site and remember such a wonderful angel he was on earth as he is in heaven now. I couldn't have a better angel watching over me because I wouldn't have made it this far without him. And God.
I love you Christopher forever and never forget!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you have my heart with you so take care of it for me.
Well another school year is about to begin and its you senior year. Its gonna be a tough one for me but I'll get through it just like the rest. Elyse had a special shirt made for her senior year. I think you would like it. Remember to watch over all of us and especially me. Keep my heart safe for I don't need it long as you are not here. I love you forever!
I love you
The Nettleton Tigers has to be the best football team in the world. The tribute they gave Christopher was the best. I've never been so touched by what the team and all of Nettleton has done. They are very special.
Nettleton seniors carring Christopher's jersey out for their last home game.
Fans with signs remembering you. What a honor.
