My heart is broken. Thomas was a gentle man who did not put on pretense - if he liked you - you knew it!!! We enjoyed many conversations together which I will always remember. Sleep my dear friend, I look forward to seeing you in the resurrection, where there will be no more sickness or pain, for the former things will have passed away. Rev. 21:3,4.

Thomas was a valued employee of the Newberry County
Schools for many years. We worked together at the district office for lots of years when Mr. Watkins and Mr. Bedenbaugh were our superintendents . We all loved him. He was so
cooperative and worked well with everyone in the school
district. What a great guy he was! I am so sad to hear this. May God's love, grace, and peace be with you at this sad time and in the days to come. Harriett Rucker
