  1. Lucille, may you be comforted by your family and friends during this most difficult time. May you feel God’s presence surround.

  2. They cried to the Lord God in their distress; He rescued them.
    He calmed the Storm to a gentle breeze,
    and the rage of the sea was stilled.
    They were joyful that the Seas were calmed,
    and that He brought them to their peaceful destination.

    Godspeed Chief Lawsey Thomas, faithful servant of God, Family, and Country.

  3. Rest well Professor Thomas. Thank you for candid, yet real conversation about Human Resources.

    Teachers come and go

    But their memories are forever

    The lessons that they teach

    Are forgotten never

    Teachers keep changing

    Every now and then

    But great ones are remembered

    Time and again
