What's up, Gail I am missing you already. I remember our last talk at the Passion City. We was talking about the box you had in your car that was going to a needy family, and we joked about me being needy. Well you continue to be the person you were on earth and you will be great with your new wings. -:)

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years contemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

Such a wonderful person! You trained to be the officer I am today. During that training period you left me with a lasting memory that will always put a smile on my face. We would speak every night when I would be leaving and you would be coming in for the start of your shift. R.I.P Spo. Thomas, you will be missed.

My heart and condolences goes out to Officer Thomas' daughter, her family and friends, and her fellow Officers. I don't know her personally, but I work as an investigator for DFCS and have depended on law enforcement for protection many times on the job- I appreciate all of you for risking your lives everyday to make sure others are safe... Thank you for your service Officer Thomas!

Thank you for your 15 years of honorable service Senior Police Officer Gail Thomas. Sometimes the danger to officers comes not from the barrell of a gun, but simply the very roads we patrol. We lost a Sgt. in the very same way. My condolences to the family and fellow officers of Senior Police Officer Gail Thomas. May you now be in peace Officer Thomas, 10-42. May your fellow officers carry on with strength and pride in your honor, as you would surely want them to do.
