My Story

Little Thomas was born Dec 10 1970 weighing 5lbs and 6oz .  Mom said he looked just like me and my older brother.  He tragically passed away within 24hrs of his little life here on earth.  He developed bacterial pneumonia.

I am Thomas' big sister, sound funny saying that cause I have only been a little sister all my life.

Over the last 37 years, he has been alone in a truro nova scotia cemetary and was rarely talked about.    I felt it was time someone started talking about this little fella and I was determined to find out where he was buried so I could visit him.  

I ordered a death certificate and the information led me to Robie street cemetary.  A cemetary I was already in contact with that told me they had no records of Thomas Charles Greenough.  They told me by their process of elimination that tommy was in tier 24 plot 6.  Will I ever know for sure if it is him?  I have to believe it is but will keep pushing for the proof.  If I don't believe I have nothing.  Tommy has nothing.  So I have to believe until something tells me I'm wrong.

I am going to visit him with my mom on  Thursday June 12.  I will be bringing him flowers and a rock memorial for a headstone, something he has never had.  Nobody ever knew where he was he was buried with no family in attendance and prob. never had his name on his grave.  I also plan on getting a memorial tatoo in truro, where we were both born and where he is buried.

I changed all that he now has a name marker and will get a real headstone somewhere down the line. 
In the meantime, I will be playing him selected pieces of music and reading him poems.  I want to leave a poems book for babies in his honour in the office . 

I wonder what he would have been like, my little brother...I can only imagine the amazing person he would have become and didn't have the chance to be.   Robbed of life but God had a different purpose for my sweet little brother.  Maybe he had to be taken home to watch over me all these years, most days I swear I have a guardian angel.  His name is Thomas. 

Somehow, I know I will one day I will be with him again as he does give me specific signs he is all around me. 
We will be his very first visitors sadly.  His big sister will make sure he gets a visit once a year as I live so far away.  This has been one of if not the most important thing I have ever done and hope he knows what I have done and can find peace in knowing how much I love him and wished he were a part of my life.
Until we meet one day little Tommy, have fun in heaven....

THIS POEM IS DEDICATED TO MY MOMMY 

 Sorry I didn't get to stay.
To laugh and run and play.
To be there by your side.
I'm sorry that I had to die.

God sent me down to be with you,
to make your loving heart anew.
To help you look up and see
Both God and little me.

Mommy, I wish I could stay.                                         
Just like I heard you pray.
But, all the angels did cry
when they told little me goodbye.

God didn't take me cause He's mad.
He didn't send me to make you sad.
But to give us both a chance to be
a love so precious .. don't you see?

Up here no trouble do I see
and the pretty angels sing to me.
The streets of gold is where I play
you'll come here too, mommy, someday.

Until the day you join me here,
I'll love you mommy, dear.
Each breeze you feel and see,
brings love and a kiss from me.

When the golden sun is setting
And your mind from care is free

Will you sometimes think of me.

When the golden sun is setting
And the birds are flitting free
When of dear ones you are thinking
Won’t you sometimes think of me.

Think of me when you are happy
Keep for me one little spot
In the depth of thine affection
Plant a sweet forget me not.
