Wil Thomas Funeral & Memorial Fund

On December 21, 2020, Wil (Wilbur) Thomas, Jr., passed away.  My husband, Brandon(Wil's twin), their mother, Sylvia, and brother, Troy are all devastated and overwhelmed.  

Wil had a big heart and a kind soul. Despite the health problems he battled,  he always managed to make sure everyone he loved was taken care of.  He checked in on and worried about his family constantly. He had a strong otherworldly connection to Brandon, without doubt from their bond as twins, and always seemed to know when Brandon needed him. He was a doting uncle who loved to see smiles on the faces of his nephews, Brandon Jr., Delvon, Naquan, and Miles.

He loved Christmas and taking the time to choose the perfect gifts, always thoughtful and practical.  He participated in toy drives and donated at every opportunity, to make Christmas better for children who may otherwise go without.  

The Thomas family has known enormous loss, even before Wil's passing, as he was predeceased by his sister, Carla (18), brother, Delvan (12), and father, Wilbur.

As Brandon, Sylvia, and Troy struggle through this painful Christmas, they also have to face the challenge of affording the funeral and memorial service to honor Wil's life.

We're raising money to cover the costs of the funeral, memorial, outstanding medical bills, and to alleviate some of the financial burdens for Sylvia who's dedicated all her time to caring for Wil.

Thank you for helping to lighten the heavy load on their shoulders. If you are unable to donate, please share the link

Peace & Love, 

Amanda
