My condolences to Teenie's family. She took me to Ocean City when
I was just a kid with Hoagie.
sympathy to Teenie's Family. Although she lived a long life, the loss of a loved one is never easy. Reading her obituary
brought back pleasant memories of the years when she and Velma were my Beta Sigma Phi Sisters in the mid-50's. We had
so many good times -- especially our early Sunday morning "Come as you are Breakfasts." May you be comforted by
your wonderful memories and her legacy of a life so well and fully lived.
