This correspondence is being sent at the request of our leader, Presiding Bishop Charles E. Blake. It is with great regret that I inform you of the passing of Bishop Howard Thomas, Auxiliary Bishop, Michigan Western Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction under the leadership of General Board Member and Prelate, Bishop Nathaniel W. Wells, Jr. The Thomas Family and the jurisdiction are in need of our fervent prayers.
Let us be in fervent prayer for the family during this most difficult time. If I can assist you further concerning this matter, please do not hesitate to call my office at 501.712.0048.
Sanctifying the Leader, I Am,
Bishop Robert G. Rudolph, Jr.
