So sorry to hear of Bobby's passing and my condolences to all of the family. Bobby was my first cousin and I knew him all my life. I fondly remember seeing him last a Thompson family reunion. He was a special guy to me because in our younger days he always took an interest in me and was very kind to this kid 10 years younger than Bobby. Any meetings we had were always filled with joy, friendship and that Thompson connection. He was such a fine man and, though we did not see each other often, I will him greatly. Sincere sympathy to all.

    Sorry for the loss of your Dad.  I knew him and graduated with him in the class of 55 from Tri-City-High School.  He drove the school bus back then and I was one of his passengers.  I haven'r seen your Dad since we graduated but to me I can see the 18 year old Bobby.
