Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Thompson Family. Memories of Uncle Bob visiting our farm near Durham, Ontario when my siblings and I were growing up. He always had that beautiful smile and great love for life. Keep his memory close to your heart. Pearl and Jack Busch and family from Golden BC.
