SPECIAL THANKS FROM the THOMAS FAMILY
The family of Father Ted Thomas would like to thank the people of St Mary parish for the food provided to the family both Wednesday and Thursday and all the people who served and cleaned up.
We are especially grateful and touched by all the stories and memories that parishioners shared with us about special moments with Father Ted.
Thanks, too, for all the flowers that decorated the altar.
We’d like to say a special thank you to Bishop Campbell and Father Corcoran for their support and for reaching out to the family and making the funeral service unforgettable and blessed.
We very much appreciated the many priests and deacons who con-celebrated the funeral mass, we could see that Father Ted was loved by all. The Thomas family
May God bless all mothers – expectant and birth mothers, adoptive mothers, step-mothers, foster mothers, grandmothers, and godmothers – that they continue to be generous in their love, strong in their guidance, and persevering in their compassion and forgiveness. Amen
