To the Editor:
From the bottom of our hearts, the Thompson family would like to say thank you for all of the prayers, concerns, donations (both anonymous and known), flowers and support following the recent loss of our son and grandson, Juddie Thompson IV.
A special thanks to Pastor Ralph Schaafsma and Stocker-Fraley Funeral Home. Thank you also to Pat McBride and Newton Schools for allowing us to use the gymnasium for the services.
To the Stillwater Community Church, the Barn Recreational Facility, Pleasant Hill Fire Department and all the other community members who donated food and their help for the after-funeral luncheon at the Thompson farm, we are especially grateful.
We also want to thank the horseback riders and pick-up trucks with flags for the heartfelt tribute during the procession as we left Pleasant Hill.
We would also like to thank all the participants at the Miami County Fair who contributed to the many memorials for Juddie.
