    Although I did not have the privilege of meeting Mrs. Thompson, I have worked with MG Thompson for the last 22 months. Judging by his character and compassionate nature, I am certain his wife is a wonderful person and will be missed greatly. Your family is in my family’s prayers as you go through this time of loss and grief. May God provide you comfort as you cherish the memories of your daughter, wife, sister, and mother. God bless you all.

    To the family,
    I work in the Payroll Department at the Board of Education. Barb submitted lots of information to us and was our contact person at the school. She was always helpful, ready to do anything we requested and was always pleasant. I never minded having to call for something. She was a pleasure to work with. I’ll miss her; she made my job easier. God bless you all.
