I remember Mr. Thompson as a little girl he was our neighbor for many years My father George Williams had a cleaning service and Mr. Thompson helped on many occasions, he was well respected and was a very good friend to our family, after my father passed I would see him at Hardee's and he always asked how my brother Ron and I was doing.I have many fond memories of him in our neighborhood because of him we always felt safe and love. So sorry for your lost because he was a good friend and love able Hunan being, who never judge by the color of your skin but by your character. He will be missed. Love Ella Williams Spear and Ron Willians.i
