Richard Edmond Thomas, Jr. (1882)

Remembrances of
Richard E. Thomas, Jr.

By his daughter,
Thelma Thomas Jackson, as told to Amy Thomas King, one of his great grandchildren.

     He believed but didn’t always go to church.  He joined the church for his wife, Lucille. 
     Two things in life that he thought were important were:  Be honest and be on time.
     He didn’t have a very happy childhood.  His father drank.  Because of that, he was very much against drinking.
     Took good care of his animals and always picked out the best beef, sheep, and pigs for tithing.
     He was kind to everyone. 

From what I’ve learned:
     Many people knew him as Ed.
     He and my grandfather, Jesse, did not get along very well.
