Angie, Lin, and Sarah:

I'm sorry about the passing of Uncle Thee. It is hard to lose someone whom you loved, and cared for.

Thee had many admirable qualities. Qualities such as kindness, honesty, strength, self sufficiency, independence, and wisdom.

He was very much in touch with nature. He built his home in the perfect place for him to live the type of life he wanted. Where he could fully experience nature, the woods, and the four seasons. And where he could give his dogs a good home.

Thee loved his dogs, his fox hounds. He had a special way with dogs. And it was remarkable to see how they responded to him.

He had a good sense of humor. He also enjoyed and liked to laugh at little things. He always got a kick out of Sarah reaching her arms up to be picked up, when she was little, when we were hiking.

He lived his life to the fullest.

Linda--I am truly sorry about your loss. I know the last few weeks have been difficult for both you and your sister. I never had a chance to meet him but the photos you shared speak volumes about his love for his animals and where he lived. Take care.

Angie & Linda, I did not know "Uncle Thee" well but from hearing you talk about him I know that he was a strong, independent person who liked to live close to Nature. I admired him very much. You have my deepest sympathy for your great loss.

Angie and Lin, So sorry for the loss of your Uncle Thee. The tools that he made from tree limbs, the hunting of fox with his beloved hounds, years of living in a rugged one room house in the woods and enjoying the beauties of nature were some of the joys in his life. Cherish his memory and his love. In his simple word "Yeah" !
