    Our deepest sympathy to Uncle Jr., Patty, Karen and Norman. I have so many wonderful memories of Aunt Theo- playing in the yard during our summer family visits, and delicious Thanksgiving meals. For many many years she always remembered Rebekahs’ and my birthdays. We appreciated those cards very much! She was a special aunt!

    Extending my heartfelt sympathy to all of your family. It was such a wonderful day visiting and exchanging family historical information at your home. I will always be thankful to my Mother for saving letters exchanged between her and Theo as that was how I found out I had Marchion cousins living nearby. Memories are made to be treasured!
