Dear family:
Our sincere sympathy in the loss of your mother. Enjoyed our "table visits" when I ate with your dad's roommate Joe Hobbs & your folks a few times. They were kind & caring folks who filled a useful place!

Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers during this time. May Jesus be with you all in a special way, and draw you close to Himself. I remember my Aunt Teresa as being very warm and personable, easy to talk to. My Dad, Al (Louis) Lantsberger enjoyed visiting with his sister Teresa when he would return to SD for visits. Those times were very special to him.
With love from Marty and Jean (Willa) Palmer
