My belated but no less sincere sympathies to Mrs. Thomas' family. I knew her from my visits to Mount Carmel Care Center and was able to spend some time at her bedside the day before her death. She and those who mourn for her are in my prayers and the prayers of all the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm, sponsors of Mount Carmel Care Center.
