    I am so sorry for your loss. Thomas was one of a kind. He was one of the few people I have ever met that within minutes of meeting him, he treated you like he’s known you his whole life. He will be missed. Prayers to you all.

    Great memories of playing cards with Mr. Thomas and my sister Wendy at the tobacco warehouse in Wendell. We never could win against him! Condolences to the Faison family.
