We are sincerely grateful for the love, compassion, caring and joy that Theresa gave our Father and our family for decades. I for one am praying to her now instead of for her. There is no doubt she at peace in God's embrace.

To all of the Eckardt Families,

Aunt Theresa was such a special person in my life. She was always there for me in my younger years. Always lending a hand if she could, providing excellent advice and always made me laugh. I loved her with all my heart. She and your Dad (Uncle Harry) were always so funny and could brighten up a room with their presence. They both loved life and lived everyday showing love and kindness to all.

I am so sorry for your loss but you and I know that she is resting in peace with her family. I hope that she is still dancing and getting the party started!!!!!

With much love and prayers that you will feel the comfort of our Lord.

Mom was a wonderful kind person and anyone who knew, her loved her will remember her as the lady who smiled all the time and loved life. That is why my words are short. We all have our memories of her and how she touched us all. She just wanted all to remember her as a happy person who loved life.
