Michael S. Thompson
(a.k.a. Della)
May 25, 1955 - Dec. 22, 1995

The world lost a delightful and sometimes naughty elf at the end of this last year in Bend, Ore., with his loving mother, Mary, at his bedside. Michael left us after a long and tenacious battle with AIDS.

Born and raised in Southern California, Michael lived ini San Francisco for many years. He was well-known and admired for his skills as a professional cosmetologist, working in several of the best salons in the city. Michael will be remembered for the exuberant charm and humor, which he lavished upon his clientele and close friends alike. He loved music and dancing, and enjoyed nothing better than a night on the town with good friends.

Michael is survived by his mother, Mary Bell, of Bend, Ore. He is also survived by his two brothers, Kenneth Thompson of Santa Maria, Calif., and William Thompson Jr. of Cheney, Wash., and his sister, Jeanine lYman of Prunedale, Calif. He was preceded in death by his brother, Steven Thompson, who also died of AIDS. He leaves behind his many friends, including Scott H., Art B., Chris S., Matthew B. and David N.[1]
