My condolences to you on your cousin's passing. I know you grew up in the same home as Dorothea. I have good memories of visiting you there as well as the many times you spent time with us on our farms. May good memories of Dorothea comfort you at this time. Ingrid

I worked with Thea Haberman at Cathedral School for many years. She was always kind and a delight to work with. God bless her. She will be missed.
