Extending my sympathy to the Thompson family - my father and mother knew both Earnest and Isabel. My dad, Theron Phillips and Earnest grew up together, and I think from my dad's stories must have done everything from throwing rocks at each other to making moonshine together. On the other hand, my mom Martha Agnes Phillips, who recently passed on November 18, 2016, and Isabel often commiserated and took care of all us kids when the two guys were having their fun. So long ago. I am so sorry for your loss. Peggy and Joe Quesenberry
