POEM FOR THOMAS BENJAMIN REYES
"LOCK YOUR BODY!"
Thomas, this is the way you will always be remembered by us. Your loving spirit and kind heart always aglow from the inside. You were always so cheerful, friendly, caring and sharing. When company came over, you loved sitting by their side. Thomas, this is the last time you'll stand at attention for us. You go from wearing Dad's marine hat you loved to wear with pride to the halo of God's angels in heaven you are now wearing. God called you to stand at attention for Him...to be by His side.
