Florean Thomas "Grannie's" Funeral Funds

Our beloved Florean Thomas "Grannie"  was called home to be with the Lord on October 26, 2020.  She was the backbone of our family, keeping us together, and her presence will be missed by every life she touched.  She was happy to be called Grannie, even if she wasn't your biological grandma.  She took anyone in if they needed a place to stay, she willingly gave anything she had, and was always happy to see and hear from her family and friends.  Her unexpected passing has left us unsure of how to financially fulfill her final wish.  Grannie expressed her desire to be buried next to her daughter in Union Cemetery in Columbus, Ohio.  At this time, we are scrambling to figure out how to pay for all of the expenses and to make her final wish come true.  Funeral plans are a church memorial, followed by a graveside service at Union Cemetery.  We are trying to raise the funds as the final expenses are to be paid by Thursday, November 5, 2020 at noon for the funeral taking place Friday, November 6, 2020.  Dwayne Thomas will be handling the arrangements and payments to the funeral home assisted by his daughter, Kearsta Thomas, and Angela Ely.  Thank you in advance for helping us to lay Grannie to rest right where she always wanted.  God Bless!
