Rest in peace dear Aunt Lavona. I can't help but think, well finally you can again go shopping with Thana! Lots and lots of good memories here. All the times we visited Estes Park while I was growing up. We could hardly wait to get there to see you and go to the Taffy Shop. You are loved and will be missed. But we know we will see you again. Say hi to Aunt Jo from me!
Love, your niece Nila Manning
(and your brother, Dillard)
