    Jody, Rafe and Jennifer,

    I am so sorry to hear of Theran’s passing. I adored his friendship at Magnetrol. We have been friends for this past 30 years and I made him keep me up to date with what was going on with Rafe and Jennifer and was thrilled at all he had to share. He was very proud of both of you kids and his love for Jody was unending. Even on a day that may not have been going right the mention of your names changed his whole attitude and he would just sparkle.

    I will miss him terribly.

    May your sorrows bring joy remembering the life of our Christian brother Theran. What a beautiful and holy family you are! Thank you for allowing me to be apart of Therans final journey here on earth. May his soul rest in everlasting peace. Amen.

  4. Dear Kalkis Family,

    May your tears of sadness and sorrow in the loss of Theran soon be tears of happiness and joy in his new life!! What a very special Easter he will have, which is something, we, too, can look forward to, as He took our place and was raised from the dead so we could have eternal life.

    Thanks be to God!!! Jeanne
