Grief... anger...and fear. Three emotions the family of 14-year-old James Thomas are facing today... as they laid the teen to rest...while pushing for clues that will lead them to his killer. The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office said Thomas was on a mandatory swimming break last Friday at the Johnnie Walker Community Center pool when he was shot by someone in the parking lot. Police say the shooters were in a car ... but never got out. Channel 4's Kumasi Aaron was at today's funeral...where family and friends paid their final respects. 3 3 3 05-0923-2740-441:23-1:27KUMASI AARON/DOWNTOWN JACKSONVILLE 113013-24 James Thomas family asked that we not be inside the church for his funeral but outside we were able to speak with people about his service and about his life. RYAN WALLACE/FRIEND 105136-47 James he was a good person. He always would make you laugh and smile all day. He was a good basketball player. Just someone you really could trust and he's like a good friend and he's really funny. Ryan Wallace says those are just a few of the reasons he came to Bethel Baptist Institutional Church.Joining countless others to honor the life of 14 year old James Thomas. Wallace played basketball with Thomas, something he says they were supposed to be doing the day Thomas died.RYAN WALLACE/FRIEND 105154-5202 I was pretty sad because we were at a basketball tournament. If he would have just came with us he would have been, well we wouldn't be here right now. Inside, this picture of Thomas, smiling just one way those here celebrated his short life. Prayer, songs and reflections from family and friends all brought comfort to his grieving family and friends. Jeneria Chrispin met James when he was just 4 years old, and says the service made the loss even more real. JENERIA CHRISPIN/FAMILY FRIEND 113523-30 Just the fact that he's gone I won't be able to see him laugh and smile and play and ask me all kinds of questions and act goofy because he was like a comedian A comedian, a teammate, a son, a brother a friend.Being missed and remembered, while waiting for justice.JENERIA CHRISPIN/FAMILY FRIEND 113554-3603 I pray whoever did it gets caught if they aint already caught I pray that they get whats due to them but I just pray about it and leave it all in Gods hands.
