    Sitting here thinking about all the good times with Thomas. He was one of the best “UNCLE” anyone could ask for. He will surely be missed. Heaven sure gained another angel. Rest In Peace, Thomas (LUMP)!!!

    Mary, Kim and Lunsford Family, I am so very saddened to hear of Thomas’ passing. I have many good memories of that sweet man and how he always made me laugh. I know your hearts are broken and I will be praying for you in the days to come. May The Lord give you peace in knowing that he is free from all pain and struggles and celebrating big in Heaven today. With all our love, Sandra, BJ, Brayden, Kevin and Randy
