  • "Honoring Old Glory" Flag Retirement Program
    Thursday, July 10, 2014

    Our flag, like each of us, has a life span. It is exceedingly important that when an American flag becomes worn and tattered or is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, it should be decommissioned with solemnity and respect. Thompson Funeral Homes is pleased to partner with the Boy Scouts of America to retire American flags in a dignified way through the “Honoring Old Glory Flag Retirement Program.” Community members who wish to donate their tattered, torn or faded American flag(s) to the "Honoring Old Glory" Flag Retirement Program can bring their flag(s) to any one of the Thompson Funeral Homes locations listed below. The flag(s) will be registered for the program and great care will be taken to ensure that “Old Glory” is decommissioned honorably.

A Letter to My Community Family

A Letter to My Community Family,

At Thompson Funeral Homes, we are completely community centered. We pride ourselves on being the only provider in the area with a staff dedicated to community outreach. We support many churches, charities and civic organizations, and many of our programs are free of charge.

We are also proud to support our Veterans in the most unique way. With the Tattered Flag Program and the Honor and Glory Funeral Coach, no other funeral home in the Midlands can equal our level of service to Veterans.

Our friendly and caring staff will provide your family with extraordinary service. With a long standing reputation for excellence, our goal is to assist you in creating a meaningful celebration that honors your loved one. We understand that no two families are the same, and therefore the needs and funeral services for each family are not the same. Our ShareLife experience will leave you with memories of your loved one that will never be forgotten, with catered receptions and services that capture your loved one’s story with sights, sounds and even scents.

We understand making final arrangements can be extremely stressful and we are here to ease your burden. I invite you to stop by one of our three convenient locations to see what makes Thompson Funeral Homes different.

Gratefully,


Funeral Director, Thompson Funeral Homes
