Dad, mum & me

An afternoon spent with dad & mum in Essex

It is with great sadness and immense joy that my father Dr. Rev S.U. Thompson – my dad – passed away incredibly peaceful at 6.15pm on 17th February, 2015.

Dad & me at his home

I woke up this morning with the sun ray beaming through the windows and the line of a well known hymn on my mind, ‘…. Blessed hope, blessed rest for my soul…’ Prior to dad’s passing, as a family we all spent many special days and hours around dad’s bed as he had requested for the family to gather together. One of his last ‘words’ (miniature sermon!!) as I held his hands were, ‘… I am now taking off my shoe and putting on my clothesI am going home …’ Dad is now at rest – no more pain, but in the loving arms of Our Heavenly Father! As a family, we would like to say thank you very much for the many messages sent to us via various forms. Please forgive us if we do not get the opportunity to respond to each one. We love you and thank you! Steve & Velveta
