  1. May the God of comfort give you peace in this most difficult time. God promises to remove the pain and heartaches of sickness and death. Thus, Jesus promised that we will see them again. He even showed us what he will do when he raised Lazarus and others. As you reflect on Mrs. Thomas reflect on God’s promises. My most sincerest condolences.

  2. Rodney Erwin family may your days be filled with milk and honey and may you know that you will always be with us in our hearts and in our minds may you rest in the glory of God the Father.

  3. Winnie, may you be greeted with the open arms of Jesus! It was truly an honor being with you and getting to be considered your adopted daughter. May you rest in peace.
