oh Tommy i miss you soooo much. i see your friends at school all the time and the memories of you i think everyday a lot of the times i burst out laughing from something you said. love you forever bro!
There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think about you. Love you Daddy
I’m so sorry I’m not able to see your video. It shows as not being able to be broadcast in this country.
Tommy is always in my thoughts and my heart.
I’ve been able to see it today. They’ve not allowed the music for some reason. At least I’ve been able to see the video. Wonderful to see the memories.
I’m working on it. I am having problems with copyright issues with Mercy Me’s song. Have found another version of the song. Doesn’t quite have the same feel but it will work. Love you mum.
Thank you Jen. The words are beautiful and they mean so much to the video. Even though they bring tears I’ve gotten so much out of watching all your videos. Tommy was so very special and it shows in each one.
Dear Botell Family,
I cannot imagine the heartache and grief your family has been faced with. What a darling Tommy must have been (even to his sisters, in those moments he was the poster child as the “little brother”)… Your pictures tell an amazing story of love, faith, and hope for a meeting again in eternity. My prayers are with you; Mom, Dad, and loving sisters. Tommy is with you all in your hearts, and you are in the prayers of many.
Thank You Gayle. There can never be another Tommy. He was a one of a kind. The best son a mother could ever ask for and best little brother in the world. Miss him with every beat of our hearts always and forever….until we meet again.
I can only imagine what you would be like today. I imagine you to be good. I miss you always.
Always in my heart Tommy. Miss you, love you!

We have just learned today of this tragedy. We were searching for answers, regarding our own loss & came upon all the information. This is an amazing tribute, to a lovely family & child.
It gives us hope.
It is beyond-sorrowful what was done, in the aftermath, and the denial & lawyers for the Park Service, should hang their heads in shame. Thank God some were brave & told the truth.
Little Tommy Bottell will be our new Indiana Jones inspiration.Thank you for sharing this, thru your own pain & grief. We bid you Peace of Christ.
I do not have a clue !
