    Our deepest sympathy to you and your families. Your Father, Mother, and the two of you have always been life long friends and neighbors, of my family. I have many fond memories of your family, especially when Loudoun would bring apples over on Christmas morning and Harold would share with him some of his “special eggnog”. Romney, Hampshire County, and the world has lost yet another respected and honorable citizen from the “Greatest Generation”.

  6. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Loundoun’ s family. He was a pillar in the community and Romney and Hampshire Co. has certainly lost a great man.
    May God Bless.

  7. I, like Becky, sat at the desk next to Mr. (Loudoun) Thompson’s for 11 years (from 1976-1987, leaving for the birth of my daughter). I have many memories of his comings and goings, his pleasure received from family, his passion for flying (having many fly-ins while I was at the office). I guess you could say I was privileged to go up into the “wild blue yonder” with Mr. Thompson in his plane on numerous occasions (now that I know I survived) LOL. Memories of Mr. Thompson and other prominent men of the community smoking their cigars and thinking I would choke on the cloud of smoke that surrounded the office corridors. Oh, and how in the world did he ALWAYS know that I moved that one important paper he’d never wanted in months, if not years when I cleared his office of the stack of paperwork thinking I was doing him a service?? In all seriousness, I sincerely send my thoughts and prayers to his family, esp. thinking of his daughter and my classmate, Ginny Kay, and Jean Ann, and all family and friends. Romney has truly lost a respected member of our community and I will be forever grateful to have worked in the office of Thompson & Parsons. Blessings!

  8. Dear Virginia And Jean Ann:

    I want to extend My Deepest Sympathy And Sincere Prayers. Loudoun, was at one time my Business Attorney and in my humble opinion an excellent Attorney. He always practiced my affairs excellently. Loudoun was also one our coffee buddies in the morning at various establishments. He brought great knowledge about the history of his Father’s Law Practice and was excellently up to date on current affairs He offered much to our group and seemed to help start my day off greatly. I must mention that his Father, Himself and I were Die-Hard Democrat’s and we shared often about that in the morning and in private. While is was County Chairman, I turned to Loudoun many times for his excellent advise. Romney and Hampshire has lost an out standing citizen, who contributed greatly to The City Of Romney And to The County Of Hampshire. May God give him his riches blessings for being The Loudoun he was.

    In God’s Love,
    Larry S. Miller
