There will never be another Theresa. She won the hearts of anyone who had the fortune to know her. The world suffered a great loss the day Theresa returned to our Lord and Maker.

Even tho I never really knew Theresa (I've only known her son Joe since spring '07), seeing some of the condolences, thoughts, memories, etc left on various pages proves she was a sweet lady who truly cared for her friends, family, work, and everything and everyone around her.  Even tho she is now in heaven, she will always be watching over her loved ones, smiling down on them, proud of what them and what they have (or will) accomplish.....Riposare in pace, Teresa.

And of course I told her all about it at one of my appointments. On the way home from that appointment, I got a call from one of those eatable bouquet places. Theresa and Linee had sent me chocolate covered cherries !!! I will never forget her kindness, and our friendship. I'm so glad I got to know you Theresa.
