VP candidate is friend to Alexandria family
The first time Tenner and Roma Thompson met Alaska Governor Sarah Palin was on the road to the Anchorage airport.
It was 1995, and the Thompsons, of Alexandria, were flying home after having spent two weeks in Wasilla, Alaska, while visiting their son, Kirk Thompson.
Kirk had planned to see his parents off himself, but when he got tied up with work, Palin offered to help her friend out and give Roma and Tenner a lift.
