Subject: Bill and Bob Thomas’s father


Just wanted to let everyone know that Bill and Bob Thomas’s father, Bill Thomas Sr., died yesterday. Funeral services will be held this Saturday, Christmas Eve, at 10 a.m. in Rose Chapel. Please keep their family in your prayers, especially during the holidays. I’m not sure what their needs are at this time.
