On September 13, 2022 at 3:00 a.m. God called one of His angels home. As Bubba laid there in that hospital bed, God tapped him on his shoulder and said “Son, it’s time to go!” Bubba responded “I’m not ready! I have so much to do! I have to take care of my wife and children! They need me!” God responded, “No need to explain, you have done all you need to do, a job well done! You are tired now so come with Me to rest.” HORACE (BUBBA) THOMAS was born on January 16, 1947 to Mrs. Adelle Thomas Polite and the late Bennie Shuler in Bowman, South Carolina.
