I did not know Mrs. Thomas personally but do know her daughter, Carol very well. If she was anything like her daughter, she was a loving, caring, sweet, Christian lady who loved her Lord and family more than anything. My heart goes out to you Carol and to your brother and your Dad. I know how hard this is to give up your Mom. We are covering your whole family in our prayers as Jesus is taking care of Mrs. Thomas showing her around Heaven. We love you and hurt for you. Dennis and Sue
