    Sorry sorry for your loss. I am sure she is so happy now to be reunited with Lavern. Mom and her are having a joyous reunion for sure. I sure remember all the family dinners at Grandma and Grandpa Thesing’s on Sunday afternoons.

    So very sorry for your loss. I will always remember your Mom with her little dog. I happened to be at Mom’s when they and Diane came for a visit. It was great to see them together talking about years ago.You all have my deepest sympathy.💕

    My sympathy to all of you. We knew her well on Bice Avenue; she was a friend, super (the best) neighbor you could ever have, great teacher and role model to my children. She taught me so much, shared so many recipes, treated us to home baked wonderful treats, was very wise and loved her little dog. We were honored and delighted when she visited after we moved. She was a wonderful woman. God bless her.
