Sad News

Today I received very sad news.  TomasSISI, a dear friend, died this morning.  I feel quite unworthy to break this news but here it is, He is no longer in this dimension.  I for one will greatly miss his writes and his presence. Sad beyond measure!

 

The one ray of light that comforts me is his last post... January 5th, 2017.

 

"After 7 dark days the sun is shining again.  I'm so happy.   Where I live the winters are dark and dreary.  Not terribly cold but you feel the coldeness of the universe here.  But just now and then, a day like today,  With the sunshining and warming the cockles of my heart."

      His last post was full of good spirits and his daughter says he went in his sleep.

    OMG!! I adored him, his posts and the friendship he showed me. He often shared stories of his life in Colorado with me. I will miss him immensely! God welcomed a man of kindness and good character. RIP, dear friend!

      Yes, he was a sweet (although he hated it when I used that word describing him) man.

      As his daughter described, it was peaceful. He was not showing any signs of illness and passed away in his sleep.

    He was a good friend and a champion of my greatly self-maligned talent. Pastor Mike and now this.

      He spoke to me about you as a great talent. He admired your writing. Yes, two of Thoughts’ loyal supporters, they both loved this site.

          Sec, I sent Rene this post so she could see all the love Thom had here and she replied with the following :

          “Thank you for sharing. I am certain Dad is still around me. He never wanted me to read his posts. I went on thoughts the day he died I read his most recent and they gave me some peace. I posted a comment in his last entry but since that day I can no longer get to thoughts on my computer or my phone. I couldn’t even access yours. My sister was able to get to it on her phone so she read the condolences. It warms my heart to know he had so many friends at thoughts. I will miss my dad so much.”
