Hi Thorne Family,
I learned from Jim (via Cousin Steve) that Aunt Melba died. Because Jill and I were close as kiddos, I came to know her well and was always impressed with her many accomplishments and her extraordinary attention to detail. She was a talented community leader.
Much more recently she became important again as we exchanged long Christmas letters for the past 4-5 years. Her 2013 letter sits next to me at this very moment. It has news of all the family, and I do mean all. I would like to make some cousin contact. I know where Jill is but that's all; Jim mentions Steve from time to time; and I wonder about Marilyn more often than she could imagine.
Blessings everyone. May our Lord of love wrap His arms around you and give you peace as you remember.
Pamela (Thorne) Smith-Tucker
