Thanks for the flowers in 1973... they were the first I ever received and it was an absolutely magical moment. Thanks for Kerry and Andrew. You told me a couple years ago that you were working to channel/be like/provide the wisdom of my grandmother. I started doing the same that very day. Thanks for Christmases, summer parties, birthdays and love. Mostly, thanks for loving me. I miss you.

I always considered you my Aunt for over 40 years but didn't get to know you as well as your other sisters but I have always loved you and will miss you a lot. I know you were an amazing mom because you have amazing children. I know I will see you again in heaven. Love you Aunt Tonna.

Words cannot express how grateful I am that I came to know you better in the last months of your life. I am thankful for your words of wisdom and ever positive outlook on life. I will treasure the "girl's" vacation we were all able to take and the laughter and love that all of us shared. I miss seeing you every weekend and bringing you fresh flowers. Colby still asks about you and tells me how much he misses you. He says he cant wait until we are all together again. Also, I am grateful to have had a chance to get to know your amazing children. They are two of the strongest, kind-hearted and giving people. You must have been an amazing mother to have guided them to this point. I am so thankful that you are there waiting for us. Until then, we will be here taking care of each other. Love you, Auntie Tonna :)

We lost a wonderful neighbor & friend. Hank worked on my Dad's farm in the early 1960's and THEN they ended up my neighbor. Tonna had a practical way about her, that is, until her witty humor check in. She loved my kids & they loved her back. She was always sewing & I remember the "Patriotic" shorts she made for Michelle. She told me she could look up the hill & see ALL my candles burning at nite "like a house-a-fire" She organized a song fest at Christmas time one year. We went thru the neighborhood singing carols & the nursing home where her mom was. ALL the kids love that happy memory. I was so sad when she moved to Marysville, but Lowell was always her home. Now it's our kids turn to keep in touch with each other and memories that will last a lifetime. Love & Miss you Tonna, God Bless your family thru this so difficult time. Gail

Sweet Tonna. I was saddened to hear of your passing. I was on the road to Wisconsin for my Fathers funeral when yur nephew Jason let me know. I immediately called Everett Transit to let all your old friends and co-workers know too. God was busy getting new angels I think. You will be missed my old friend.

See you again in heaven.

Hugs, Pam (Drexler) Audette
