I am saddened to hear of Thressia's passing..I worked with Thressia many years ago (for quite a few years) at Knox Estates. Every now and then I would see her in the store and would stop and chat. She was a giving person with a caring heart. I know her and Nellie are probably together in heaven. RIP Thressia. Prayers sent to her children (she talked of them so often) and her family.

Wish I could be there in person to pay my respects. It's been years since I've seen anyone and I hope you know I haven't forgotten Aunt Thressia or any of you from when I was a kid! So sorry for your loss -Nathan Allen Leigh
