We were saddened to hear of the passing of former Bland County Sheriff Jerry Thompson. The Sheriff’s Office would like us to inform you of the funeral arrangements that will be on January 2, 2021. The plan is to meet at the White Gate Community Center located at 2760 Walker’s Creek Rd in Pearisburg at 1500 hours. Then the law enforcement vehicles will join the funeral procession (at 1600 hours) from there to the cemetery located at 1892 Sky Dusky Rd. in Bland, for a public ceremony. The family will have a private ceremony at Vest Funeral Home if you would like to send flowers and remembrances.
