Unfortunately, death is the only constant in life. And another sad fact is that as humans, we ought to deal with the loss of a loved one.
I’ll never forget the memories we made all through my life. I’ll miss you dearly, but I’m just happy I have such great memories of you I can cherish forever. Rest In Peace you beautiful angel, I’ll see you soon. I love you momma ❤️ pic.twitter.com/TnKMB49aNT

However, the death of a mother is perhaps one of the most difficult losses a human can ever experience.
To maintain a positive attitude despite his mother's death, a young man decided to pay tribute to her in a special way. Thomas revealed on Twitter that he got himself a tattoo with a beautiful message.

In his post, Thomas said his mother wrote a note to him on the same day she died. However, due to a cardiac arrest she suffered, the words were not very clear. But to this devoted son, it was perfection.
My mom wrote me a note the day I moved out / the same day she passed, (also with her real last heartbeat). She lost mobility in her hands from her previous cardiac arrest so some people may see the words as messy but it’s beyond perfect in my eyes. I love you so much momma❤️ pic.twitter.com/8ZKBkeVrlH

He later shared another Twitter post where he expressed his love for his mother and the many things about her that he will always remember.
Today I lost my best friend. I was lucky enough to have 21 years with you but I know you’ll be waiting for me with big open arms. I’ll never forget the things you taught me, how to laugh, how to be strong, how to be honest, and most of all how to love. Rest In Peace momma ❤️ pic.twitter.com/BaJR5Bp1SN

For example, a Twitter user sent him a heartwarming message and a word of prayer.
Idk you but this just brought me to tears. There is nothing sweeter than a mothers love. It's unconditional. She is always with you. I pray for you & your family. Keep your head up
