    It is very difficult to think that I will never see my sweet aunt again. Her soft voice and gentle laugh mirrored her kind heart. She was a very precious friend to her brother, my dad, and he considered her not just a sister but a dear friend. Just before my father died he and mom were planning a trip to Hawaii with Theresa.I am deeply saddened at her sudden passing. I wish her children peace and comfort during this difficult time.

    Theresa was a kind, cheerful co-worker at the VA and a fun lady to camp with during our Girl Scouting days.
