Last night October 29th, at 11:50 p.m. Thurston Thompson beloved husband of our own dearly loved Earma Thompson went home to be with His Savior. He moved from the victories he had known on this earth to the ultimate victory of hearing Jesus say ‘well done’.
Last year Thurston was diagnosed with Cancer and I always said that ‘ he had a praying wife and a miraculous God – anything can happen!’ and it did! He was given a wonderful year with his family to celebrate his 50th Wedding Anniversary in style and to be surrounded with his family and friends who loved him so much.
Thurston was a man who never complained, (I never heard a word of complaint from his mouth) and who always found something to laugh about – I loved that. His fun response whenever you said ‘it is good to see you’ was ‘it is good to be seen!’ let you know that in his presence there was always something to smile about.
We will dearly miss this wonderful man of God. Who not only knew how to release his wife to ministry, but was her biggest fan! He was her cheering section.
On a purely selfish side …..I will miss his amazing BBQ’d ribs. But we will look even more forward to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb now!
Thank you God for the gift of Thurston to all of us and mostly to the kingdom of God…his unselfish willingness to will be a support to his wife and the ministry of E2E will be long remembered and appreciated.
God you truly know how to give good gifts to your children!
You can send condolences to Earma through our website at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get them to her.
We will also post memorial times as soon as we have them.
Grateful for the gifts God has given,
