In Memory of LILLIAN R. THOMAS (8/20-/41 to 3/16/07) In tears we saw you sinking, and watched you pass away. Our hearts were almost broken, we wanted you to stay. But when we saw you sleeping, so peaceful, free from pain, how could we wish you back with us, to suffer that again. It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone, for part of us went with you, the day God took you home. We love you and miss you every day of our lives. Love your family and friends.
