I was saddened to learn Tom Donis an alumnus of my high school in Doraville, GA has been battling illness over the past year. Tom is now ready to meet his Lord Jesus Christ. His family has asked for prayer. Brother Thom

A note from Tom’s daughter Tammy:

“My sweet dad has been dealing with an illness for over a year now and has been such a fighter. The picture on the left was just two days ago after coming home from the hospital. Sadly his health declined over night and we’ve called in hospice. He’s tired of fighting and ready to meet Jesus. Our hearts are devastated at how fast this is happening yet we are grateful that he’ll be peaceful soon. It was just 5 years ago this month that my sister Dixie passed in the same way. Please pray my Daddy doesn’t suffer much longer and for our family.”

Let’s stop and pray, us everyone.

Dear Father God, we come to you in prayer of thanks and gratitude for your abundant grace. We also thank you for the life and accomplishments of Tom Donis. He has been a faithful servant and a leader among his many friends and family. News of his illness has saddened us all, but we are happy to read that he knows Jesus Christ and is ready to meet Him when called home to his glory. Father God we know the wonderful work your servants in Hospice do for so many, these nurses and medical staff are among your special gifts to us. We pray that Tom’s hospice team will make the right critical decisions in his care going forward, and ensure he is comfortable until the end. We would like to make one last request of You Father God, please wrap your loving arms around this family, comfort them, bring them peace and let them enjoy each and every moment they have left with Tom. Take Tom’s pain and discomfort away, and bring him eternal rest until our Lord Jesus Christ comes to raise the dead and the living. In Christ Jesus’ name, amen.
