  1. My dad.

    I always believed in you and I still do. You’re my hero. You always believed in me, in my service.

    Your sons are here now, With you.

    I spoke to you last on 28 DEC 2017 @ 0618 California time driving toward the main gate of Camp Pendleton. I was on the way to have a jog in Torrey Pines National Park. I hung up the call right before the canyons where I always lose service. You said “I Love You too, Semper Fi.” when we hung up. Not even 48 hours ago.

    I love you, Dad.

    -Your Second Son

  2. Our deepest condolences to the Thomas Family. May Gods peace be with you & your Family.
    Steve & Virginia Wilson

  3. Revelation 21:4
     And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away

  4. I met Mark at Gwinnett Medical Center probably 15 plus years ago and sadly I haven’t seen him in 10 years. . I am heartbroken to see this. He was a wonderful person who loved life, his family and friends. The sun got a little dimmer. God bless you all.

  5. Dearest Lucille
    You are my Hero… your care for Mark was relentless. You sacrificed your own dreams and desires to always be there for your son.
    I pray you will allow yourself time to rest but then you will spend everyday hereafter on earth doing what you believe God has for you now.
    I love you very much.
