Fellow AWOGANS, it is with heavy hearts and deep sadness we announce the sudden death of AWOGAN ~ ANNETTE THOMAS ~ on Saturday, 3rd August 2019 in London.
Annette was very passionate about her Alma Mater the Annie Walsh Memorial School and until her call home, was the Internal Auditor for AWOGA UK. The entire Membership remains in shock but during her time in office she made her mark and we will always remember her fondly, celebrate her warm smile, her talented angelic voice and vibrant committed spirit.
She was upfront, bold, honest, talented, smart, helpful and to the very end remained committed to AWOGA UK. Her last message on the AWOGA Executive forum on Thursday, 1st August 2019 included these words “I remain committed to AWOGA UK…”
In the words of hymnists Mary B. Peters/Matthew S. Smith we say:
We expect a bright tomorrow; all will be well
Faith can sing through days of sorrow, all all is well
On our Father’s love relying; Jesus every need supplying,
Yes in living or in dying, all must be well
Our deepest condolences go out to Annette’s family during this extremely difficult period – especially her daughter. May God give them the grace and peace that they seek in the days, months and years ahead for He promised us that “Joy cometh in the morning”. There are no words that can ease the pain we all truly feel at this time, but with God her joy is eternally sealed and we pray that in time memories of Annette will bring to us all smiles and laughter, and not tears. Your loss is immeasurable Annette but so is the love left behind.
Annette…may your soul rest in perfect peace and may the angels greet you well. Sleep on Annette, sleep on; your work on earth is done.
