On Sunday afternoon the family of Mike Thompson released the following statement….
It is with great sadness that we write to let you know that our beloved husband, brother, father, and grandfather Mike Thompson lost his battle with leukemia last night.
A visitation will be held on Thursday, September 19th, and the memorial service and reception on Friday the 20th. Times and locations will be announced soon. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Mike’s name to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
Kit, Mike Jr., Liza, and the rest of the family are surrounded with love and we thank you in advance for the space to grieve privately for the next few days. Please stay tuned to Mike’s Caring Bridge site for more information.
One request we have now: Please consider writing a story or stories about your experiences with Mike. We hope to gather these together and give copies to each of his grandchildren. We appreciate any stories you have and ask that you email them to [email protected]
