Memories Timeline


  1. Dear Candace and Sandra, I was so saddened to learn of Thea’s passing and send you and the family our deepest sympathy. Thea was so special and Barb Zimba and I loved shopping at THEA’s in her shop at 17th & L Sts in Washington. Daniel and I loved attending your wedding, Candace, which had all the loving touches of Thea. We share in your loss. Sincerely, Betsy Mohler

  2. When we lose a loved-one in death, we feel devastated. During these times, take comfort in God. For he “is close to the broken-hearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit” (Psalm 34:18)
