Thomas family

Authentic campaign page for the Thomas family, created by Jennifer Ambrose Ketola. 

We are the Ketola's, friends of the Thomas family. This page is to help the Thomas family raise funds to cover any funeral or out of pocket expenses.

We are hoping to raise the funds as soon as possible – His 4-year-old daughter Ava lost her battle last night – and 15-month old son Spencer is still in critical condition. Mom, Lacey is still in the hospital and is in stable condition; they are all at St. Joseph’s.

On Friday, April 1, 2016 Lacey had no idea that her leisure walk, on a nice day with her three children down Neff Lake Road, near their home in Brooksville, FL, would be one of the worst days of her family’s lives.

According to 10 NEWS – “Florida Highway Patrol troopers say a distracted driver hit Lacey Thomas, her 15-month old son Spencer, and 3-year-old daughter Ava. According to friends of the family, Thomas’s 6-year-old daughter Tana, saw it all happen. She was not hurt.”

The family was taken to St. Joseph’s to be treated. Lacey was last listed as in stable condition, and both children in ‘critical condition’. During the late night hours, Ava lost her battle.

We are a family of 4, and cannot imagine the pain the Thomas family is feeling. The Thomas’s are such a caring, loving, beautiful family. As parents and friends, we plead to you - even if you can only help with $1.00, that dollar will help the Thomas family.

We are all very appreciative of your thoughtfulness, and prayers.
