Recently , we lost one of our glorious angels, Jerry Belton Tompkins. He was a man who brought joy to everyone he met.
He was a loving father.
He was a loving husband.
He was an honorable soldier.
He was a reputable joker.
And he had a big heart.
There was never a dull moment.
No matter what, he supported his children.
He went peacefully. And today, he is at his new home in heaven.
We love you and we miss you!
