One of my fondest memories of you was when I was entering high school and you told me "If I ever find you in Cactus Park I will skin you alive and THEN call your mom". It's always reflected who you were to me, very loving and caring and very no holds bar. You were always more of an aunt then a cousin and I'm sorry I never told you that. You will be extremly missed by all of us but I know your in a wonderful place, probably bossing God around. I love you Vonnie and miss you lots.

Aunt Vonnie was an inspiration for all women. She always made me feel like I could do anything I set my mind to. She was strong and loving at the same time, and she wasn't afraid to speak her mind. She also fried some great fish. I'm going to miss her so much. And Uncle Theo, you are in my prayers.

Memories of you and Theo moving to Phoenix with us in that old green stationwagon, crusing Central after the football games, you wresling me to the ground when I told you that you weren't strong enough to be a cop, bowling, Las Vegas and wanting the secret to your choc chip cookies. I'm lucky to have such good memories but unlucky because it will make me miss you more. My love and prayers to Theo, Thell, Terry and their families.
