Our family loved "Doodle" for his quick wit and charming smile. He was a cherished nephew of my dad's and my sisters and I always heard great things from dad about him and the fun they had. He would take dad fishing and come down from Columbia and go fox hunting with dad. I first remember him as the good looking cousin from New Orleans. In recent years, "Doodle" told me some funny stories about dad..and would laugh harder than anyone. He always had a good joke to share. He could be serious too..and was very knowledgeable and cared about people.Two years ago, I had him and other family members over for a " family gathering." We had a great time, and Paul Thompson took us over to the Native American grave site of our ancestors. It was very interesting to us all. On the way back through the woods we could go through an opening in the fence, but Doodle chose to show us he could cross over it (at 85 years). I made a book of pictures of our fun that day. Later that evening he called to tell me "thank you".

I will always cherish the memories of the good times he had with my dad..Doodle took him fishing and went fox hunting with him. Dad really enjoyed his company..he was laughing a lot of the time, telling jokes and things he remembered doing with dad. I liked to hear him tell stories about his folks in the "old days"..and especially about my dad. I didn't know he could strum the guitar and sing until I saw the video lately of him in a jam session with his son.Two years ago, I held a "family gathering" at my home for several of the "older generation"..we visited the Native American grave site of our ancestors..We enjoyed the trek through the woods and coming back he showed us how he could still cross over the fence (at 85)..He called to tell me "thank you". He will be missed by a lot of folks.

Bro. Thompson was a pillar at Urim Masonic Lodge # 111 in Calhoun. He spent many an hour and burned many a gallon of gas, driving from his home on Woolen Lake to the Lodge every Tuesday Night and at least 2 Thursdays a month, to lecture and work with a bunch of "hungry" Masons wanting to partake of his knowledge. He freely gave his time and of himself and represented the epitome of a Mason. He will be missed and I have no doubt I'll see him again, rest assured, he will not be forgotten!
