Alan Roy Thompson
It was such sad news we received last week about Alan. Although we were cousins we only met through doing the family history which Alan found really intresting and that the Thompson family came from the Bristol Area originally. Although most of the Thompson family moved upto Birmingham in the 1800’s. Alan was such a lovely gentleman with a lovely sense of Humor and when we met up we had a fantastic time. Alan and Tess came to our son Chris’s wedding and we had a lovely weekend and the photos i have added are from that day almost 5 years agon now. in the picture you can see Alan and Tess along with my mom and dad Pat and Ray Thompson who also have passed away in the last two years. Alan and my dad Ray really hit it off talking about the old days when Alan used to go into the shops owned by my grandad and other members of the Thompson family and never knew they were related!!!.
The second picture is of Alan and Dad having a chat about the old days and all the people they both knew but didnt realise.
We are really going to miss you Alan.
Our thoughts are with you Tess and the rest of the family and we will come down to see you Tess when we can.
Alan a good man with a great sense of humor and a lovely person.
