Dad Remembered


Dad Remembered

Harold A Thomas was humble.

He was tall, black, and strong.

Everyone loved his disposition.

By nature, he worked diligently.  


His eleven kids lived quite happily,

For dad was a joy of their hearts,

And provided for their basic needs.

He was their rock of Gibraltar.


Friends said good things about him.

They loved his resourceful ways.

Often, he was like a bright star

Shining a steady light in their midst.


Dad was generous and kind.

He gave freely to the poor.

Our family followed his example.

He was really gifted in many ways.


So, dad’s memories would live on.

On September 8, 2010 at 94,

He died in a local hospital as a fighter,

And was buried in Georgetown, Guyana.
