I planted a tree for Theda. I wanted something that would carry on her name for a long-long time. My favorite memories of Theda, my wonderful stepsister, is our fun lunches halfway between her house and mine. We have met many times over the years. The first thing I would see when we got out of our cars was her beautiful smile. We would enjoy good food and many laughs. Theda you will be missed and remembered with love. Linda Guill
