Dear Nancy and family,
So sorry to hear of Theron's passing. I remember how he would get together with George Bender (my stepfather) to play music. He will be missed by many. I so wanted to come to the funeral but we had appointments all day for our 18 month grandson who we have guardianship of.
Take care Ron and Janice.
