Bob and Cindy Thompson of Barnesville were united in marriage 50 years ago on April 21, 1967. They have three children, Jim Thompson (Shelly); Wendy (Eric) Cline; Bobby Thompson and his friend Misty; seven grandchildren, Craig and Chase Thompson, Shawn and Canarissia Cline, Samantha, Anthony and Blair Thompson; great-grandson, Jaxon.

A private celebration was held at their home, but a traditional Thompson party celebration was held this summer in their honor.
