Thomas is Vada's best friend. As the story develops, Vada loses her mood ring in the woods while throwing stones at a beehive. She doesn’t have time to find it though as the agitated bees are beginning to swarm.

Like all chivalric young men, Thomas goes off into the woods to find Vada's lost ring. While searching in the woods, Thomas kicks the bees nest. At that moment he notices the mood ring. In his elation at finding the ring however, he has failed to notice that the bees have started to swarm and, unable to escape, Thomas is stung to death.

This movie tore me up when I saw it in theaters. Granted, I was just an 8-year old sentimental kid, but it just really stayed with me for the longest time. I also sympathized with Thomas J., because I, too, was the neighborhood geek. I never got the girl, though, and I never died from anaphylactic shock, but still.

The bees method for death is "Poison."

This is my favourite movie! It's so sad, i cry every time i watch it. I dont know why i watch it all the time since it makes me cry but something about it makes me want to watch it over and over and over again until i cry and cry and cry.

My Girl is my favourite film and it always makes me cry. I have watched this film lots of times and now i cry before Thomas J dies. I start crying and getting tears in my eyes from the moment that i first see Thomas J because i know what is going to happen to him in the end. I also have the book. I have a lot in common with Vada and Thomas J. I like writing like Vada does and i am unpopular. I use to get teased when i was at school. And my personality is just like Thomas J‘s personality. This film feels so real but it is not real. Vada lost her best friend and Thomas J went to Heaven. He was only 11. Thomas J was my favourite character. When i am older and when i get pregnant and have a baby if it is a boy then i will call him Thomas J and if i have a girl then i will call her Vada. He is sadly missed but never forgotten. We really do miss u and we love u Thomas J. Your memory will live on in our hearts forever. Rest in peace Thomas J. sad smiley xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
