A Patriarch has passed away

Dennis R. Thomas

For the last 10 years I knew "D.R.". Weekend visits to Anniston Alabama. Christmas's where upwards of 40 family and friends would gather at his house to celebrate the birth of Christ. I married into the family and was always welcomed warmly. D.R. was a Godly man who held his family close to his heart.
