    I am so sorry for your loss. I taught Thomas last year. He was such a wonderful young man and I am so glad I had the privilege to know him. He was so smart and full of life. I find it so hard to believe he's gone and can't imagine what y'all are going through. I am praying for all of you each day and pray God grants you peace during your time of sorrow.

    I had the opportunity to coach at Ashbrook when Cricket was a freshmen. He would lay the wood! That hard hitting fella had the biggest heart and biggest smile. I have always remembered that about him. My prayers and thoughts are with the family during this tragic time. Let God guide you all through this. RIP Cricket!

    To Mom & Dad of Thomas, please accept our deepest sorrow as we help you and share your pain. We don't know each other but to grieve for a child is completely out of order. May God stand bedside you on this journey and pick you up when you fall. Pam and Jerry Spencer.

    Cricket was such a respectful young man and would do anything in his power to help you. He had such a good spirit about him and was a very driven and determined young man. Cricket, rest assured that Rodney and I will continue to look after your parents. We will make sure they know their special pharmacist in the heaven would want them to take care of themselves here on earth. Carla, TJ, and kids....we love y'all and are here for you for whatever you need.

    So very sorry for your loss. During times such as these the bible can be a source of real comfort. Psalm 34:18 says that Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted. Revelation 21:3,4 also says that God will wipe away the tears from our eyes and pain and death will be no more. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
