Thomas was my classmate, and I just learned of his death. I pray the family finds comfort in knowing He was one of God's faithful servants. Each and every time I saw him he was humble and kind. I bought mattresses from him about seven years ago. I took one of my daughters with me to motivate her and show her another example of the blessings of faith, love, and hard work. Praying God blesses the family with peace and strength.
