My deepest condolences to Therese ‘s family.
I have such fond memories of her at Sandfield Place.
Her baking for our fundraisers were always in great demand and the first to go!
Most of the time the staff would beg to buy it before it got to the table!
Her support of the activity staff was amazing!

I would like to express my deepest sympathy to the family of Therese. I honestly didn't know her well she was a friend of my grandmother but she knitted both my sons beautiful Christmas stockings that we still hang each year. She was a very talented lady I'm sure she will be missed.

Dear Marlene & Families,
Thinking of you in your time of loss. May the lessons your mother gave you last a lifetime and may you always feel her spirit nearby.
It is so difficult to lose a MOM…so sorry for your loss.
