We at Long Creek Church are greatly saddened to report that on Monday, January 18, our dear friend Rachel Thomas passed away at her home in Texas. We mourn the loss of her presence here on earth with us but have assurance that for her, it is pure joy as she sees her Saviour face to face and has no more sickness or pain or sorrow. She and her husband Rob have made some fast and life-long friendships among us. We will miss her greatly as each Spring she and Rob would travel to their PEI home for the next few months and she would bless us with her friendship, her quick wit and beautiful harp playing. Her band mates in particular are grieving her passing. She and Rob have deep roots and close friendships here in the Maritimes and beyond, and also in the area where they lived and worked in Texas. Please take time to read the beautiful tribute in her obituary at the link below. We send our love and pray for all Rachel’s family and indeed the many, many people whose lives she positively impacted. She loved so well and we are already missing her.
