Our deepest sympathies to the Noble family on the passing of Heather’s grandfather, Lloyd Tompkins of Listowel, this past Tuesday (September 30th, 2014). May the Lord be a comfort to the Nobles (Heather and Adam, and children Hannah, Elizabeth and Audrey) at their time of loss.
On the day of his death Heather said,”Earlier today my Grandpa, Lloyd Tompkins, went home to be with his Lord. It is such a relief that Grandpa is free from his failing body. Those of us that he’s left behind are blessed with the absolute assurance that Grandpa is in Heaven telling jokes with Jesus.”
