  The Core Beliefs of Gary and Sue Thompson
   
 

*  We believe in God and that we are saved by His grace through Jesus Christ.

 

*  We look to God's word in the Bible as to how to live our lives.

 

*  Our marriage, children and spouses, and grandchildren are the primary and most important relationships in our lives.

 

*  We love our family members and try at all times to treat them with love, kindness and respect.

 

*  We agree to disagree if family members have different beliefs and values.

 

*  We are willing to share our values and beliefs, if asked.  We will not argue about them (especially religion and politics).

 

*  We strive to not gossip about family members, nor attempt to divide family loyalties by taking sides if disagreements arise.

 

*  We recognize that we fall short of our best intentions at times and encourage all to not hold grudges - and to ask for forgiveness when needed.

 

*  To the best of our abilities, we have, and will, support our kids and their families emotionally, spiritually and financially.

  *  Our goal has always been independent, honest, kind and self-sufficient children.
 

*  We will always love you, all ways, and our hope is that love and relationships will be maintained throughout our lifetime, as well as yours and your children's.

   
 

Love,

 

Mom and Dad......Grandma and Grandpa
