learned as a youth to care deeply about his family.
supported his mother, respected a new dad and
helped raise his little brother.
A father not afraid to launch out, work hard and
move when necessary to provide for his family.
A father who teaches lessons even while playing
baseball- like saying "Sorry" when he hit the ball
in the weeds.
A father who raised one of the most productive and
lush gardens and allowed me to help.
A father who set an example in service to others and
and faith in God.
A father willing to help and share when things were
tough for others.
A father not afraid to dream and to work to see them
A father who would continue to share all he had in many
different ways for his family.
A father who loves and cares even while his life is slowing
I FOUND THAT FATHER IN MELVIN WARREN THOMPSON.
