Jimmie Thomas Obituary

There is no other place I long to be, than In my Savior’s embrace, where we are free from life's cares. There's rest, and sweet communion, for Jesus has all that I we need, For in His presence there is fullness of joy, and at his right hand are pleasures forevermore, there is no place that I'd rather be, Than in the arms of Jesus my King. It is with utmost sorrow, and heaviness of heart that we announce the passing of Ms. Jimmie L. Thomas of DeSoto, TX.

Jimmie was active in her Father's Church, House of Shallow Holliness Church, she loved singing in the church choir. Jimmie commitment to Christ developed into a leadership roll, as an Assistance Pastor of her Father's Church.
