Parse error, unexpected end of file in contact.php

I'm getting Parse error: syntax error, unexpected end of file in C:\xampp\htdocs\contact.php on line 72

Line 72 has the following: <?php include('inc/footer.php'); ?>

Below is my code. Please help. Thanks.

<?php

if($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST"){
    $name = $_POST["name"];
    $email = $_POST["email"];
    $message = $_POST["message"];
    $email_body = "";
    $email_body = $email_body . "Name: " . $name . "\n";
    $email_body = $email_body . "Email: " . $email . "\n";
    $email_body = $email_body . $message;

    // TODO: Send Email

    header("Location: contact.php?status=thanks");
    exit;
}
?>

<?php 
    $pageTitle = "Contact Mike"; 
    $section = "contact";
    include('inc/header.php'); ?>

    <div class="section page">

under Ida's first answer click the checkmark that says best answer.

Hi Milton,

You've placed this question under "General Discussion" and so you can't reward "best answer"

See if you can change that category to "php" instead.
