Thompson Family,
My sincere sympathy at the passing of Willard. "Woo" was one of my life-long friends and classmates. He was one of the great trio of Pork, Potts, and Woo. I will miss him so much. Richard Hibshman (Porky).

Willard will be sadly missed. He was a great man, the best Chief of police that Sharpsville had, and great to hunt with.

Dear Carol, I used to be a neighbor on Ashton Ave. I lived next to Mrs. Connelly until I moved. I remember our evenings sitting in her back yard visiting. I can still see Woo pulling up next to the house in his cruiser. It was always a comforting feeling knowing that you lived two doors away. I have thought of you often over the years. I lost my husband just over a year ago after being married for 32 years. My deepest sympathy to you and I send you my best thoughts.
