  5. It’s never easy accepting the passing of a dear friend like Willie Earl Thomas was to me. He was one of my best friends and I loved him dearly. The Lord has seen fit to remove all the pain and afflictions from Willie and give him rest. Those of us who knew and loved this man were truly blessed by the Lord to have had him touch our lives, even so briefly, and instill in each of us, memories of the heart that we will cherish for the remainder of our own lives. The memory of Willie will endure. I will always remember my friend Willie as a kind, decent and unselfish man. I never knew Willie Thomas to have hate in his heart for anyone. Willie Thomas had friends, because he knew how to be a friend. There can be no goodbyes between us as friends. Willie Thomas is eternally in the love of our hearts and memories. May he Rest in Peace.
