Love and prays
I Will miss his hyper, talking all night and not letting me sleep, sharp witted self. We shared alot of great memories together, it’s sad when a light as bright as his goes out so early. I always enjoyed being around Dillon, except around steep ledges or deep ravines. He would be the one leaning over the edge trying to give me a heart attack, or when he would randomly taste things not knowing what they were or what they would do to him. The loss of a child is unimaginable. I feel for the family and pray for their peace, knowing he is climbing on the gates of heaven now with Michael comforts me.
Praying for all of you. ((((HUGS))))

My wife & I did not know Dillon Thomas, but we regret the sorrow you feel. We’ve grieved the loss of sons who were older than he, and I’m sure it doesn’t feel so right now, but we can tell you that as time passes you will be able to remember more of the good times and dwell less on your loss. We found that each person grieves in a different way and at different times, so we encourage each of you to allow for those differences in your families.
We are of the Christian faith and we dealt with our pain based on our belief that God is still sovereign even when we don’t understand tragedy. May you find comfort as you walk through this “valley of the shadow of death” and may friends share their good memories of Dillon Thomas with you.
So Sorry Amanda You are in my prayers
Amanda, my thoughts & prayers go out to you & your family during this time of loss. May God bless you with His peace & comfort.
Amanda – my heart broke when I read of Dillon passing away. As a school nurse I am in contact with many kids every day. Dillon immediately found a place in my heart. I pray often that His (Jesus’) light will shine through me as I do my job and take care of kids, and that I will be a blessing to them in some way. . But I find in so many instances that it is me who is blessed! I was very blessed with the opportunity to get to know Dillon, to talk to him during rough times, tonoray for him (and you and Michael), to see his mischievous smile on a daily basis, and to share tears and laughter with him. As I think about him – as a believer in Christ, in heaven – I can only imagine!
I will be praying for you and your family!
I love you Amanda! I am praying for you and Keegan and all who love Dillon!!
I’m gonna really miss you bro. I will never forget when we hung out.
I miss seeing Dillon everyday in my classroom. His loss is felt daily. Your family is in my prayers. I love and miss you Dillon.
I miss dillon so much. I wish he didn’t have to go so soon. I love all of yall. If you need me i’m here. I remember every times we seen each other we would stop doing whatever it was we was doing an run an give each other a hug. He always gave the best hugs. I miss everything. I miss his voice, jokes, just everything.
