Mary will always hold a special place in my heart..I lived or stayed with Mary and Norman (Pearson Drive; Wake Robin Way) more than I stayed with my own parents.I wasn't just a relative.I was always one of the family.Cousins by blood; Brothers and sister by heart.Mary and Norman always kept us honest and safe.I can honestly say that I would be nobody without the Thomas's being in my life.Any accolades,popularity,or confidence I ever possessed,I owe all credit to Robin,Bucky,and Wayne..Robin always made sure I had decent girlfriends(anyone else that would try to squeeze in she would knock them out("J.R.")...Bucky was my muscle.I never could get in a fight in my pre-teens because he would step in and say you might whip David but you won't know til you whip me first.We were inseparable.. Plain and Simple; Wayne made me the athlete that I became.Everyday;football,basketball,baseball,plastic ball.... Myself:11 or 12.Wayne,his friends:16-18..THEY TAUGHT ME TO BE REAL FAST!! I love all you guys and I pray one day we can all join our love ones and family in paradise.GOD BLESS Mary,Norman,Bucky,Charles,Bubs,James and all of our love ones who have past into eternal life..

Ms.Mary was neighbor for so many years. Such a sweet lady and will be greatly missed on our street. Still remember times forgetting my key for my house and how sweet they were to let me stay with them. So many good memories.

Our deepest and sincerest condolences to the family. Words alone can not ease the pain when grieving the loss of a love one. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3-4 states, "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away". May God give you and your family comfort in your loving memories and in His promise that soon we will never experience losing our loved ones in death and we will be able to see them again once they resurrected as per John 5:28-29. May these words give you a new hope, with deepest sympathy and warmth of heart.
