We share so many memories Tek. I will miss your soft spoken advice, your tender hugs and your unconditional love and support.
So very glad I got to see you several months ago when I was in Texas. Little did I know it would be our last visit on this earth. I know your arms are around Georgie and Big George now giving those tender hugs. Rest easy now Tek. The hard part is over, rejoice now in the arms of our Lord.

Oh, my. Dear Mrs. Shoop,

How many memories over the years did we all share?
There was always laughter and love. You and George are now rejoicing with George in Heaven. I am so glad Judy Basedow Mossibrocki and I got to see you a few months ago. Even then you had your bright smile. You will be missed. My love and prayers to you and family.
