McVeigh Funeral Home
Thank you to everyone for being here today to pay tribute to my son. Losing a child is a parent’s worst nightmare and I cannot put into words the grief that my wife and I are feeling. The love and support that we have received from all of our friends and family has helped significantly in getting us through this difficult time.
Like most father’s I was excited for his birth but worried if I was ready to be a father and for what was to come ahead. However, the moment I held him in my arms I knew that I would do anything for him.
I know at times I spoiled her, but all I cared about was making Tommy happy. I know that he was. He always had a smile on his face and was a bright and cheerful child.
Having a son also taught me a lot about myself. He showed me how the things in life that used to cause me stress were inconsequential. There is nothing more important than family and the love of a child. My wife and I were so blessed to have such a wonderful child in our lives.
Tommy, your humor, positive attitude and handsome smile are what I will remember most about you. Your mother and I will never forget what a wonderful person you were and your memory will live on in our hearts forever.
