Dear Larry and Lisa, Your Dad seemed to have lived a long happy life in Christ. Take care of Edith and know that you are in our deep prayers. You and Lisa are members of a different church as we also
go to another church but we all support one another in prayer. Love in Christ, Dan & Karen Brown

It was ALWAYS a pleasure talking to Thompson when he would come to the bowling alley in Staunton with Larry. Such a joy to talk to. Very polite and always had a smile on his face. When he stopped coming, I would ask Larry about him. I am so sorry for your loss.

I will always remember Franny as a true friend of our family, not just my Dad. We witnessed the best example of a Christian Father & Husband and we love him like he was kin. This world is a better place for him having been here.
