A close friend with family anchors for many years. Thomas was a good friend, and I will forever admire the relationship he had with his mother, sisters, and brothers. Over the years, he demonstrated his love for family through visits - there for emergencies and words of inspirations that he shared with those of us who were a bit younger. His children and friends must be justifably proud that this man remained steadfast and a beacon of light. Brother Thomas, peaceful journey and I am glad that I knew you and appreciate your kinds words of concerns.
