Dear Victor and George…. So sorry to hear about Teddy’s passing. I only found out today (July30). I would have attended her funeral. She was such a dear sweet friend to me. So warm , kind and beautiful in every way. I had the privilege of working with her in the store many, many years. I loved her and she was loved and special to so many people. The most gracious person I ever new. I am so thankful that she was in my life. God Bless you all. Darcie (Thiet) Elshoff

To Teddy's Family, I loved Teddy. I spent my high school years in and around Silver Spring. She was gracious and kind, always! I was always in awe of her quiet presence in the store. I just wanted you to know, she was a treasure to all.

Dear Victor and George, Sending our deepest condolences on the passing of your mother. The Collias and Mallers families were the best of friends starting with our grandparents, who I fondly remember always being together in church. The friendship strengthened with our parents' generation and it was always a big deal when your mom visited Ft. Wayne with her boys. "Aunt" Theodora was beautiful, sophisticated, and kind. God blessed her with her well-deserved long and accomplished life. Eternal be her memory. With love, Elaine and Gregory

Dearest Victor and George- Sending my deepest condolences and love to both of you. So many happy and funny memories our 2 families shared. Coming to your home after Church, my dad telling you stories about the Packers, etc. Both of my parents grew up with your parents. Our mothers (Fay Kalafat) had a special bond. My mother often spoke lovingly about the Collias family. Recently I was thinking about your mom. I had no idea she was at St. John's. Years ago I tried to find her after she left Ridgefield Circle. I live in the Seattle area, otherwise I would attend the funeral. Memory eternal. Fondly, Andrea Topetzes Mann Bainbridge Island, WA
