THE Magee family home is filled with memories of a happier time.
David and Jacqueline treasure the moments before they lost their son Thomas a week ago today.
The conversations with the chatterbox at the dinner table, the look of innocence on his face amid the naughtiness, his happy, loving personality shining through in everything he did.
His little coat and toys are how he left them. 
His school bag, drawings and scribbles on pieces of paper are dotted all over the house.
Along with those reminders is a little poem that fills both Jacqueline and David’s hearts with pride.
It’s called ‘Someone Special’ and was written by the four year old about his father. 
For David, who tragically witnessed his son lose his life last Thursday night, it’s a precious piece of writing, and this week he kindly allowed this newspaper to share his son’s touching words:
“My Daddy is special because he looks after me around the farm. 
“We grape silage and bed the cows together. 
“He watches me drive my tractor around the garden.
“Daddy is the best farmer in the whole wide world. 
“He makes me feel happy everyday, he tells me I’m the best boy.
“I love my Daddy.”
And his Daddy loved him. 
It’s a family where love comes first as evident by the words of his older sister Emily who at just 10 years old stood at his funeral at Maguiresbridge Methodist Church on Sunday and paid tribute.
“Dear Thomas, you are very special in every way,” she said, standing close to his small white coffin.
“We loved you sitting there everyday working on that little farm of yours. Your favourite joke was ‘What is black and white and red all over? … A sunburnt friesian cow.’
“Our mind is on you right now and always will be. Your memories are extraordinary and special like you. We will never forget you,” said Emily, to loud applause.
And given the outpouring of grief across Fermanagh nor will anyone who ever met Thomas Magee, the welly wearing, little farmer with the infectious smile.
