I have only fond memories of your mom and dad. I enjoyed her stories about shows she saw in Vegas, especially seeing Buddy Hacket. Many good times on Nature Drive. She was always hip and happenin. She was a good woman. I am sure she is in a Casino in the Sky.

When I think of her I still smile. I remember all our fun times on nature drive. I will always remember her, your dad and Stanley (couldn't help it. He is part of my memory)

Thel was always kind, witty and respectful. A beautiful spirit. Norm and Thel were the best. Two of my favorite people in the bowling industry.

I’m so sorry to hear of your loss what a great woman. Always had a smile on her face when I would see her at every High Roller tournament. I am very blessed to have known her and Norm. We know they are together again. Your friend Hare
