    We are sorry for your loss,my husband Juan passed away the same day and we were greiving for Marty also when we heard that she had passed. We will be at the funeral. We loved Marty so much and she loved my girls. We spent a lot of time over at the Thompson’s house and vice versa. She was a great woman who did service wherever she was needed and a great seamtress. Juan and Marty are rejoicing now because they are both with their parents, relatives and friends who have passed before them. May God bless all of us. We will heal and our hearts will be full.

  • To Mrs. Thompson’s family, I’m very sorry for your loss. I wanted to offer you some comfort that I’ve found in the Bible. In John 11:25 Jesus said “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life.” It’s my hope that you can draw comfort and strength from this promise that we can see the loved ones we have lost again. (Acts 24:15)
