    To the case familly our deepest condolences on the loss of your husband and father. My sister and I recently ran into Theo and his wife and daughter in the woods of lake Jacomo during mushroom season and had a short conversation. My step-father and Theo shared many of the same attributes of good ole boys from the hills of south Missouri and Arkansas. He was spoke of around our house quite often and fondly…He will be missed.
    God Bless

    Dear Grace and family. Shelley and I are so sorry for your loss of Theo. I so remember all the good times we all had at the farm. Seems people are passing away and all we have are our good memories. I hope you remember us, but you are all in my prayers and thoughts. Remember we are thinking about you all. I’m sure Paul will miss his fishing buddy. Love and prayers to all of you. Ros and Shelley
