Thomas uploaded a black-and-white image of his latest tattoo, which read “resilience,” in one of his final posts before he died.
Thomas had also recently shared a touching message about his “#1 Grandma” visiting from California.
“Her dear friend decided to take my beloved Grandma on the cruise after originally planning to go with her recent husband who passed away during the pandemic,” he captioned a sweet video of her arriving at Fort Lauderdale International Airport on March 5.
It was a process to do it all after juggling my hectic work day/week, the start of my EMT classes, a flat tyre, moving into my new home, and my transition from Los Angeles to Miami,” he added.
“However, I make it work for those I love because they deserve it and I appreciate their efforts because they do the same for me.”
The news of his untimely death shocked the modelling and entertainment industries, leaving many in mourning.
