Tara Thomas

In memory of Chris Thomas

My 22-year-old son Christopher M. Thomas was murdered February 8, 2015, after an automobile accident. He was shot several times. His death was senseless. His death has brought so much pain to my family and me. When they killed him, they killed my family also. Dreams were destroyed. He leaves two beautiful daughters and a younger brother who love and miss him dearly. My husband and I feel helpless because we as parents are to protect our children, but we feel as though we failed him. We love and miss him dearly. His life matters!!!
