We wish to extend our sympathies to Mike and the entire family of George Thompson. George was our next door neighbor here in McArthur, and we regret not getting to know him in the short time since we've joined the neighborhood. He was undoubtedly an honorable; well respected man, who served his country and loved his family. God bless you all. Sincerely, Paul & Lois Howard
