Larry and Joan, My heart is with you and your family in the loss of your mom, my dear Aunt Theo. She was a lovely person and you were blest to have had her so many years. I was glad for the beauty of her farewell service, all the pink and white surrounding her, reflecting the warmth and kindness, capturing her essence. And the various family branches present, offering support and respect for her and also yourselves. We will all miss her and remember. God be near and bring you comfort.

Our thoughts are with your family during this difficult time. I have fond memories of Aunt Theo and Uncle Leonard at their home in Lansing. She was such a kind person who loved children. I remember how happy she was when I brought Sara to visit as a baby. When I think of her, I think of her love of the outdoors and their trips to the river.
With the recent loss of Jim's father, we certainly sympathize with your loss.

Sending prayers to the Mannor family. Aunt Theo was such a wonderful person and I have great childhood memories of her and Uncle Len's home.
