Dear Thompson Family,
The hearts of my wife and I are very sad at the passing of your father. We would see him sitting on his porch as we were out for a walk and either stop to say hi, do a fist bump, high five or a handshake. He always had a smile for us and made us smile as we walked away. I am very sorry for your family and for our community to have lost an iconic individual such as Mr. Thompson.
Bill Hench
My deepest condolences and Prayers go out to the Family.  I would hear and see him singing in Bethel's Men's Choir, his voice was unique. And also see him sitting on his front porch, keeping watch over HIS part of the street.
My Prayer is that the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will comfort and keep all of you in these trying days to come.

Prayerfully Submitted,
Sis. Mary Lee Scott,
Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church of Carlisle Pa.
