    The Doctors and Staff of your vets office, Hanover Regional Animal just wanted you to know how much we loved Mr. Theusch's visits. He was certainly a character and will be missed. We know that Queenie, Tiki, Chop Chop, Casper and Kim will miss him too.

    I can't believe it has been three years Grandpa. I miss you and wish you were still here. I know it is selfishness but I can't help feeling that way. If not for me, for those who really need your guidance. Garrett is doing well, I know you are proud, I have done my best to coach him as I know you would have but maybe not as hard lol. I just want you to know you are greatly missed and never forgotten no matter what comes up you are still and always will be the backbone to this family. Thank you for that.

    Dad, I miss you very much. Mom is doing better and has done what you have asked. Not all family members are pleased. However, this was your final wish as you have told it to me and Gil. We love you and always will. I know you are waiting for us and we all will be there soon. Love Donna, Gil, Jack and Julia
