Sharp dresser

Health conscious

Eleuthera-born

Really enjoyed life

Very ambitious

Insurance Executive extraordinaire

Naturally sociable



Went for boiled fish on Saturday mornings

Enthusiastically appreciated finer things

Lover of classical music

Dedicated husband, father and grandfather

Optimistic entrepreneur

Never liked to lose Scrabble



Tennis lover, played almost every day

Helped many financially

Only rested occasionally

Methodist Lay Preacher

Playful sense of humor

Served his community and his God

Open to learning

Nimble piano player

I thank my God upon every remembrance of you. (Philippians 1:3)





A Tribute to My Mother, Judith Pamela Thompson

Jesus is in her heart

Uprightness is her goal

Dedicated to her family and church

Interested in gardening, magazines and her dog

Tidy, she and dirt are no friends

Healthy, slim and strong



Proud of her heritage

Admirable career accomplishments

Makes a joyful noise unto the Lord

Exemplary lifestyle

Laughs a lot, especially at silliness

Always believes in prayer



Teacher, never mind her retirement

Helpful, always lending a hand

Outstanding cook, scrumptiously good

Mindful of the needs of others

PLP, all the way!

Survivor, still standing after many trials

Orderly, she likes everything in place

Noteworthy mother, and grandmother.

Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised. (Proverbs 31:30)
