We mourn the loss of a mother, grandmother, sister and friend. The time we all shared with Thedy is special and sacred. The lives she touched were unique and innocent in her special way; she gave what she had, all that she had and was glad to do it. She could make you laugh; her smile was contagious. The way she could take sadness, turn it around and make it gold was a gift from God. She was our gift from God. She was intellectually in tune to the feelings of others and knew exactly what to say to make you feel better.

She graduated from Breckinridge County High School, attended Owensboro Community College, could dance like no other and rock and roll was the best. Her voice was like the sound of a gentle ocean breeze, her hands were strong, yet showed years of hard work, her creative abilities showed in all she did and achieved. Her articulation for words was just like our mom's, yet her own. She was spiritually motivated, her faith in God, faith in family were her strengths. Thedy simply had a beautiful heart, spirit and mind.Expressions of love can be made by simply doing this: hold on to those you love. Keep them close ans when it;s time to say until we meet again, have no regrets. Be still...Know God.
