  1. This is absolutely TRAGIC! Doc Thompson was THE FUNNIEST guy on radio AND tv; Every time I got wind that he would be filling in for ANYONE I would get SO excited! He was, by far, my FAVORITE radio & tv personality! will miss him SO very much. I’ve been crying my eyes out all day today. In the world so full of evil, nastiness, & sorrow Doc Thompson’s booming personality along with his faith, not only in God but his fellow man as well, stuck out like a sore thumb! He was a shining crystal in a sea of darkness. May the Lord be preparing you a place in His Heavenly Kingdom Doc Thompson! You have DEFINITELY earned YOUR crown brother! Always the faithful & humble servant to please God AND his fellow brothers & sisters. What a testament he was in representing the goodness a society can have if only we will continually seek it like he did & never give up. You will be SORELY missed Doc Thompson!
