On Friday a visitation will take place from 4-6pm at the funeral home. Immediately following the recessional out of the sanctuary, Mrs. Thomas’s physical temple along with her cherished family will be escorted to the Oak Grove Cemetery  in Elizabeth City, NC  for Interment Rites.  This will be a very solemn day for those close to Mrs. Thomas, however, all can find comfort knowing that after every dark cloud the sun will surely shine again.
