Terrible News About Rick Thompson

Got this email from Jane this morning.

Just wanted to let the Boomers know what is happening.
Saturday Rick fell from the 16 ft roof of a metal building onto his back on a concrete floor. His spine was severely fractured and he has massive head trauma. We are here waiting for doctor to come back and remove him from the ventilator. There is too much brain damage for him to recover.
Just wanted to let all of you know how much we enjoyed being a part of the Texas Boomers.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Jane and family.

Oh no, this is such sad news! I can’t even imagine what Jane must be going through. Prayers for Rick’s entire family! (Including his Boomer family)
