    Although I did not know Mr. Thomas he must have been a great dad. I do know his daughter, Connie. She is a wonderful and loving child of God and I'm sure her dad had something to do with that. My condolences go to the whole family. Prayers are with you all in your time of sorrow. God bless! Mona, Terry and Rebecca Riggsbee
