We were sorry to get the news at Cullman from Jimmy Ponder that Connie Thomas Warren lost her battle on October 1, 2019.
Connie is the daughter of the late Charles Thomas of Sand Mountain Beagle Club. Sand Mountain was Charles 2nd home and his daughter, Connie and family was always by his side. Many of us would leave the Southern and go to Sand Mountain's License Trial. Sand Mountain was destroyed by a tornado in 2010. In 2011 Sand Mountain ran their license trial at Alabama thanks to Jimmy Ponder. Connie became Field Trial Secretary in 2011 and did everything she could to help Dad, as well as her husband, Tony and daughter, Lindsey. In 2012 Sand Mountain was rebuilt and held their first license trial at the new club. Brace Beagling friends all over the country, the Thomas family, and many of their friends, Sonny Price, Jimmy Ponder, Benny Joe Grigsby, Homer Boyett, Billy Johnson, Ron Burdett, Hugh Donehue all came and helped make the license trial a big success. Connie was a loving daughter and was definitely the apple of her father's eye and did everything she could to help him and Sand Mountain to be a success.
Unfortunately Charles passed away in January 2013 and Connie held Sand Mountain's License Trial and last trial in memory of her Dad. She and the family did a fabulous job, as well as the Alabama friends and fellow beaglers from many states who came in his memory. Charles nephew, Joe marshaled every day and was more like a brother to Connie than her cousin. Anybody who knew Charles and Connie just loved and admired them. I know Charles would say to Connie
I'm sure Connie would tell the love of her life, Tony, daughter, Lindsey and the rest of the family and friends; as they would tell Connie
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Warren/Thomas family and friends. Connie will forever be in our hearts and live on through the many special memories and good times thru the years. Rest in peace my friend as you are another guardian angel.
