Preston was a wonderful man. I met him when he was a substitute teacher in Florida. He was such a pleasure to be around. Funny and genuine. RIP my friend.

My brothers and I grew up in Norwood and were neighbors of the Thompsons. We played with Preston and Bobby as kids and have such fond memories of those childhood days and friends. May God bless you, his family.
