Nana Tobin was an absolutely wonderful woman. Probably the best cook I've ever had the pleasure of being in the company of. I cannot recall her ever having a cross word toward anyone and have only the fondest of memories. Every year at Christmas when we'd have supper she'd make the most absolutely perfect trifle, and she'd always make these sweet potatoes with marshmallows browned on the top (they were my favorite). Because of her I always play Roger Whitaker during the holidays as he and Bing Crosby were always playing on the console stereo they had in the living room. Such wonderful memories.

My dad was Vince Tobin, Theodore’s brother and he died at 57. Your mom and dad didn’t forget my mom and would drop in and visit occasionally. I have simple memories of the three of them talking, laughing and enjoying each other’s company. It is easy for me to remember your mom as a kind, loving woman and I am sure your house was full of the same.

Thank you for allowing me to join with your family in this small way in appreciation of a life well lived.

My memories of your mom are of many years ago and I remember her as a very sweet woman, who was interested in my youthful travels.
