I wasn't honored to meet Mr. Thomas, but I am blessed to know one of his son's wife, Mrs. Claudette Mason Thomas. Mr. Thomas probably knew that his son "Bo," has a wife that truely loves him, and will always be there for him. Prayers of comfort to the Thomas and Mason families. Jesus loves you, and I do too!
