To the entire King family. My Father Richard Thompson and Buford were very close friends, and worked at Carolina Steel. My father passed away October 1995. I sat many evenings with Dad, Buford and I, working on dads car. May God richly bless your family as you walk thru this hard path, May he give you and your family a Peace that Passes all Human Understanding.
