I just received this message from the Diocese of Southern Ohio
Brothers and Sisters
Word has just reached us that The Rt. Rev. Herbert Thompson, Jr, retired bishop of Southern Ohio, died suddenly today. He was traveling in Italy and passed out after swimming and was unable to be revived.

I can't even begin to imagine what his family is feeling right now. All I can think to say is that they are in my prayers.
