Thinking of all of Alice’s family at this time. She was such a vital part of the Watford United Church for many years. Her devotion to music and her caring personality will long be remembered. She was also a big part of the community along with your father with their business dealings and leadership. Sorry Bob and I are unable to attend her visitation but thoughts and prayers to all.
Dear Anne and John, my sincere condolences to your family. Your Mother was a wonderful lady and very kind to me as a teenager. I will always remember her beautiful rich alto voice singing in the choir and with her trio friends. Your family put up with much from me when I babysat you in the summers at home and at the cottage. Hugs and prayers for all of you from an old baby-sitter
Dear Thompson Cousins,There are so many memories I have of spending time at the cottage and holidays. Aunt Alice was always special to me and I regret that I can not be there to celebrate her life with all of you. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Cousin Barb and Dan
Deepest condolences to the Thompson family. I’ve know Alice and family my whole life as she sang with my mom in the Treble Trio in Watford even before my parents were married and for a long time after. Wonderful lady and a wonderful family – Tom, Paula, Shealyn, Ryley and Laine Beaton
Anne, Kris, John and families – We send sincere condolences. We are unable to attend the Celebration of Life but will be thinking of you all and remembering your mom fondly. Bill and Betty
Our sincere sympathy to Anne,Kris,John & families: May all your happy family memories warm your hearts, and caring friends surround you with comfort at this difficult time. Dave & Norma Wilson & Family
We extend our deepest sympathy to all of Alice’s family. We sincerely wish that we could be with you to join in the Celebration of her Life but we are presently in Florida.
We can not begin to convey to you the great respect and admiration in which we held your mother and also your father. In all the years that we spent as their neighbours in Sombra they were our closest friends with whom we enjoyed many trips and fun times. They enriched our lives in many ways and we will forever thank God that Alice and Bill Thompson were a part of our earthly lives and we await a great reunion in heaven.
Alice Thompson was blessed with the gifts of hospitality and an eagerness to learn. She was always interested in what we were doing, and interesting to visit with. She was a true and loyal friend to our dear Mom, and we will always cherish her friendship. Our sincere sympathy is extended to her family.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you…Sincerely Oliver and Janet Smith
Sending my deepest sympathy, I remember your parents when I was a child and our parents attended “Home Builders” at the Brigden United Church. One summer our family vacationed at their cottage in the early 1960’s. May God give you peace and understanding at this most difficult time. Deanna Core (daughter of Dean and Lorna)
