Thomas Gray Lived Six Days, But His Life Has Lasting Impact

“Instead of thinking of our son as a victim, I started thinking of him as a contributor to research, to science. […] The way I see it, our son got into Harvard, Duke, and Penn. He has a job. He is relevant to the world. I only hope my life can be as relevant.” – Sarah Gray, Thomas’ mother

“It helped her get over the loss. It was part of the healing process, seeing that there’s still research going on five years after. His life was worthwhile. He’s brought a lot of good to the world.” – Ross Gray, Thomas’ father
