    I Thank my God, making mention of you always in my prayers, hearing of your love and faith which you have toward the Lord Jesus and toward all lthe saints, that sharing ofyou faith May become effective by acknowledgement of every good thing which is in Christ Jesus. For we have great joy and consolation in your love, becuase the hearts of the saints have been refreshed by you, brother. Philemon 1:4-7
    PE and Karing Kelli, we love you and miss you and “hope” the same love you show us rests in your family.

    While I only met Mr. Thomason briefly, I know his son, Eric, very well. I have watched him walk through this illness of his father’s with faith and strength from God above. I have heard reports of his parents’ faith and how they have lived one day at a time as the Lord commanded and relied on the prayers of others for encouragement. Through this time of hardship they have all let their good deeds give glory to God in heaven.

    With love,

    WE all wish we could have our parents for ever. I was blessed to have my mother until she turned 70, but God gave me my father until last Christmas, when he was taken at 93. I know you will miss your father more than words can express. A son always misses his father. Make sure you spend as much time with your mother as possible and enjoy that blessing. Losing my earthly father made me think more of my Heavenly Father. Knowing that He is with me at all times has given me enormous comfort. I love my Heavenly Father and trust that all His decisions for my life are for His purpose. I do all I can to live up to His expectations for me, just like I did my earthly father. That way I will hopefully make them both proud of me and what I can do to be His instrument on earth for as long as He desires. I know in my heart that your Heavenly Father will continue to use you as His instrument so that He will be proud of you, just like your earth farther was. We love you Eric and share in your loss. God Bless you and Kelly!
