There is not much left for Donna and I to say about your father that hasn't already been said over the years. That goes for your Mom as well. They were exceptional people who were ideal role models for many of us that were fortunate enough to share many great memories together from1984 -2000 while they were here in Glens Falls!!
Your Dad was very instrumental in my career development which I will always be grateful for. More importantly is the friendship we developed.
One f the hardest moments was when your parents moved to Arizona. We visited them on a couple occasions but had to eventually settle on phone calls!
Mr. Thees will always have a special place in our hearts. May he Rest In Peace and celebrate his reunion with your Mom❤

Grandpa I love you so much and cherish every moment I got to have with you!! You were the sweetest man and I loved trying to catch you on your walks and taking you out to dinner to take your mind off things. You mean a lot to me even though there was little conversation between us. I loved taking you out and will never forget the times we spent together. You were my grandpa and that love was unconditional whether you knew it or not. I will never forget you and forever keep you in my heart. Love your only and favorite granddaughter. Sarah Marlene❤
