To dear Estelle & the family,
We watched the funeral of our brother Frank, & although it is not a happy time, we apricated the tributes that we made at this time.
We all loved him as he was such a special person in all of our lives.
May you find strength to continue, & have the same faith that he cherished.
We are sorry we could not be there but we were with you in spirit. May God watch over & bless all the family at this sad time.
Much love, Linford & Pat

Mike and I as kids growing up in Barrie, I always saw his dad, Mr. Thompson, even in his own house as larger than life, great smile, great laugh, Jamaican patois, riding at camp Keswick with the family while Mr. Thompson drove (steering with only one finger), fascinated watching his interaction with Mrs. Thompson, laid back, willing deacon at the church, ready to help, haven't seen him in decades - rest in peace, brother; we'll meet again when Jesus returns soon.

Dear Trish & family.
I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your father.
I had the honour of meeting Mr. Thompson only a few years ago. Though that was to be the only time we would speak, he is someone I will remember. He entertained me and my sister with stories of your childhood, the trials and joys of raising you and your siblings, while making it clear what a blessing you all were to him. What a charming, warm and eloquent man.
My deepest condolences.

I have always enjoyed having lunch at Frankie and Muriel’s home on many a Sabbath afternoon and our chats after. I remember being allowed to use their riding lawn and if Frankie was not happy I ended up finishing in the middle of the lawn he never mentioned it or behaved any differently at any other time 😊. May God comfort and strengthen everyone at this sad time but not without the hope of the great re-union when Jesus returns.

Pauline and Robby It was always a pleasure visiting Bro T as he was affectionately called by us. We enjoyed his hospitality and listened to his words of encouragement. He was a kind and caring person. He is sadly missed. May his memories live on. Sis T and family take comfort in the fact that he lived a long and meaningful life. May his soul Rest In Peace.
