I would like to send my condolences to the family of Mr Thomas. Losing a love one in death is very sad but we can all take comfort in the scriptures at (2corinthians 3:1,2)where it tells you that god is the God of all comfort and he will comfort you in your time of need. I am so sorry for your loss.

To the family and friends of Jessie, I am sorry for your loss.  And to you Kenyatta you are in my thoughts and prayers at this time.  Losing a loved one in death is never easy, but Jehovah God promises to do away with that enemy called death forever. (Isaiah 25:8,9) May the memories shared with Jessie be a comfort to you now and in the days ahead.
