    Michael and family…. I’m so sorry for the loss of a beautiful woman. No words can express how sad this is. A person can never say, “I know how you feel”. Nobody can ever feel that sadness. I send you all my love and condolences. Take care of yourself and each other. Love you my dear friend. 💖

    My prayers for all of you. Theresa was so kind. I worked with her for many years and she was always smiling and had a happy thought to share with me. It is hard to know that she was so looking forward to retirement and that it was cut short. She is blessing heaven with her smile.

    My prayers are with you all. Theresa always had a smile and a happy thought to share with me at work. She was so kind. I was happy for her when she retired, because I know she wanted to spend many good years with her family. It is so tragic, but she is with the Lord and I know she is smiling down and watching over all of you. I am sorry that I could not make it out there this evening. In Christ.
