To the Times of Ti:
The extended family of Ryan Thompson would like to express our deepest gratitude to all of those who have in any way been there for us during the tragic loss of Ryan, Asia and Justin.
Maybe you just held or shook a hand or maybe you just thought of us. From the smallest to the largest gesture we are forever grateful.
Special thank to Jesse and Tonya Thompson, and Lenore Curtis and Todd Henthorne and Mark Tucker for all that you did.
We respectfully ask that you now keep Ryan, Asia and Justin in your thoughts as we, as a community, turn our attention to Mindy her children and her family and do whatever we can to help in her recovery.
We would also ask the youth of this and surrounding communities to consider how devastating the consequences of your choices can be. Please, when faced with the choice, chose not to drink and drive.
Thank you all for your support.
Rodney Thompson and family
