My sympathies and thoughts to the Thompson family. I only knew “Cub” as a kid but I always liked him and I grew up with his kids and liked them all too. May he rest in peace. I didn’t know that Phyllis had passed and I was very sorry to learn of this also. God bless you Becky, Robin, Melissa, and Connie. I am sorry for your loss.

May you find comfort in the memories that are yours to cherish always, and strength in the companionship of those who share your loss…. I have learned never to underestimate the healing power we all have. It is always there to be used for the highest good. Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. (Matthew 5:4) May it be a source of inner strength to know that there’s a loving God watching over you, and that, throughout this time of need, He’ll stay close by your side. I have fought the fine fight, I have run the course to the finish, I have observed the faith.-2Timothy 4:7. As for me, I will lie down that I may sleep; I shall certainly awake, for Jehovah himself keeps supporting me. -Psalms 3:5
