Obituary

There are no words to describe the utter sense of loss of a life swept away too soon. For her, we release her spirit to return to the Father of Spirits, the One whose love for us far surpasses all we know and understand.

Erika Loraine Thomas was born February 12, 1972. She departed this life on Friday the 17th of June. A native of Cincinnati, Erika attended Finneytown High School, Ohio University and the University of Cincinnati. Her God –inspired interest and concern for the lives of others, led to a career in Nursing. As a Registered Nurse, Erika found her calling in the Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit at The Christ Hospital in Cincinnati.

How essential and appropriate that one thus hearted and  so overflowing with love and compassion for others would dedicate herself to those whose hearts needed to be mended.

Erika was a free spirited woman who loved to travel and see the world. She traveled extensively throughout the United States and also spent time in Europe, The Caribbean, and Mexico.

She attended Trinity NorthBrook Baptist Church and it was at this place she came to know the Lord Jesus Christ, becoming a follower of the Savior and confessing Him as the Lord and protector of her life.

The Scriptures offer a profound phrase in the book of Isaiah: “As a mother comforts, so will I comfort…”

During Erika’s illness she was comforted by many.  Her mother and father Cheryl  S. Thomas and George W. Thomas. Ramona Pulaski Thomas, her stepmother and a coterie of relations; some of blood, some of choice, will remember the trajectory of her life. For those who mourn Erika, the Lord promises comfort.

Oh, my beloved daughter… the unfinished tapestry of your life will never be forgotten. Your race on Earth is complete and your light faded. Our eyes, blinded with tears of sadness, lift up and rejoice in the hope of every child of the living God: Oh beautiful one, we will see you shortly. And your everlasting smile will greet us on that glorious day.

Erika, until then.
