Dear Elizabeth and family,
Fathers from St.John Evangelist Church and especially I, fr Raymond want to express my condolences and prayers for all of you in this time of sorrow and loss.
It was so meaningfull to me to be present with Thomas,you and your family. Thomas said to me he knew he was dying and his thought was that he needed Jesus his Lord to accompany him on his journey.
Our habits of life carry us through our pain and loss. It was evident to me that Jesus was so important in Thomas' life.

May Jesus continue to be your support now in coping with your loss. May the many graced memories all of you share of Thomas as husband and father be reminders of the love the Father has for each of you.

Thank you for inviting me to be a part of Thomas' and your lives. May Thomas rest in the peace of Christ.
