Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. I will never forget how sweet and genuine Hope was to us while Christopher(Bachmeier) was coaching at Berthold. She always seemed to have a smile on her face and made the time to say hello and see how things were going.You could tell that she really cared about what we had to say. It was just the type of person Hope was and we feel very lucky to have known her! 


God bless,


Christopher and Beth Bachmeier and family

Brendon was in Miss Thoresons very first class. She was a new teacher, I was new to having a child in school. I was one of her room Mom's and she was so creative and loving. Shelbey had her next and I still have a video of a mothers day program, Hope and the first graders, put on for us Moms. I think it was ten or more songs and little gifts for us besides. She always went the extra mile.  Sydney had her ten years after the other kids and she was just as loving and patient then,  even though she had you two boys of her own. She was a great teacher, a happy teacher, that loved what she did. She probably packed more living into her years of living happy and always busy than most of us, who have been blessed with a few more years than she got.


I ran into her about six months after she had been diagnosised with cancer, in line at Marketplace Foods. I got sick to my stomach there in line,  thinking of what i should say to her. I was afraid I'd get emotional and make her feel like I thought it was already over or something. She made ME feel at ease, she made me feel comfortable instead of the other way around. She told me about a trip she was looking forward to with Jay and her sister and school the next year. There was no way she planned to go anywhere.  As she walked away I wondered would I ever see her again? How sad that would make me! I did not see her again, just left her comments. I am as sad about her passing, as I knew I'd be. Our sympathy to you Jay, Chris and Josh ...for whatever the reason she was called home early.


I hope the services tonite and tomorrow, and help you in your grieving process, although give yourself time to digest whats happened in your own time. You have alot of support. Thinking of you all...Kerry and Pam Picek family

My deepest sympathy goes out to you all and I am so unbelievably sorry for your loss.  "Miss Thoreson" was a truly amazing teacher, coach and mentor in my years at BHS...her spirit, humor, and TRUE love of working with kids will be treasured forever.  Keep the incredible memories of her in your hearts as those will comfort you ~ she touched so many lives and I will never forget her laugh...it was infectious :)  I pray for your comfort and healing in this time of great sorrow ~ what an amazing guardian angel to have watching over you.  One can only pray to be the kind of person Hope was...incredible to say the least.  You will all be in my thougths and continuous prayers (my daughter's too ~), as she followed the caring bridge updates with me and was very sad to hear of your loss ~

Our deepest sympathy goes out to you all at this sad time.  Hope will forever live in our hearts as a fun, caring and loving wife, sister, aunt and FRIEND.  We will miss her very much.  She brought so much life and spirit into all of our lives by everything that she did and for that she will always be remembered.  I know that I speak for everyone when I say that she made learning for our children fun and exciting.  The memories that she has left behind will go with our children forever.  Rest in peace my friend for your love of life and your smiles and hugs will live on within me, and knowing that you are watching over me as my guardian angel is very comforting!  You all will remain in our thoughts and our prayers now and always!

Hope,


   I just wanted to tell you that Elise came home from school today, so concerned. She said that she and the other girls in her class all took turns saying prayers for you, and built a sand castle in your honor, as they were out on the school playground at recess. Your impact on our children's lives is an incredible legacy of love and I wanted you to know of their attempt to honor you in their own way.


Love, the Foster's
