We are quickly approaching your birthday, and for the first time I won't be calling you so that the boys can sing Happy Birthday to you. I keep thinking about last year when I surprised you with a visit. We had such a nice visit, even though you got mad at me for coming by to do yard work..hehe I miss going to your house and sitting there just talking to you about the years we spent together while I was growing up. We always had so much fun. God I miss you so much!! I know that you, Grandpa, Mom and all of your other family and friends are so glad to be together again. I know that you still watch over us, just like you always have...even Lane says that you do. He's been dreaming about you so much and he says that it's your way of visiting with him. I believe it. That's just like you :) We love you Grandma!!

Grandma, never will a day go by that I won't think of you or miss you. You gave so much of yourself to all of us. We are all better people because of you. I am so happy that my boys had a chance to experience the love that only you could give. They miss you too, more than words can describe. You will always be remembered for the love, laughter, caring, and wisdom that you shared with all of us. We love you!!

Grandma, There are not enough words or time to describe how you filled my heart with love. The many stories and memories you shared with us will always be with me. I know how much I miss you. But I also know that you are my guardian Angel and I know you are watching over all of us. Brian and I along with the rest of the family will help each other thru this difficult time as you would want us to. Love you always Grandma!

Grandma, you were always there when I needed you. No matter what it was for....a laugh, a shoulder to cry on, or just someone to talk to because life was feeling rough. The whole time I was growing up you were my rock. We shared so many wonderful moments and you have given me so many amazing memories. I will always love and miss you! Thank you for teaching me to be a good person and for always loving me.

Mom, you were important to me in life and you will forever be with me in memory. You taught me strength and showed me how to give my love to others without expecting anything in return. Please watch over us all as we continue on without you in our lives...I will miss you.

Mom I just had to say:
Lord, receive this soul into the heavens, may she walk beside you among the stars .... I will miss you.

I was sorry to hear of Aunt Theresa's passing. It was good to see her a few years back when she visited Minnesota. I have fond memories of visiting her in Sacramento and also visiting Theresa Marie. I know she will be missed by all of you. She is now with God and the rest of her family. My prayers are with you.

Love, Annette (Andrajack) Clemens (cousin)

I met my Aunt Theresa for the first time a little over 2 years ago. I was working in Sacramento for a time and went to visit. Even though we'd never met (or if we had it was when I was a baby) she welcomed me into her home as family. I had a nice time talking about our family and everything else. I'm sad I didn't get more chances to visit. My heart goes out to Theresa's family.

Theresa was a very special lady. She had great faith in God and was an inspiration to the Rosary Makers at Holy Family Church. She will be greatly missed.

I was so sorry to hear of Aunt Theresa's passing. We had such a good visit with her the last time she was in Minneapolis, and I was glad that my son Mike got to see her when he was working in Sacramento a while back.
I know Uncle Barney and Theresa Marie, Grandma and Grandpa and all of her brothers and sisters welcomed her into God's warm embrace.
Our hearts and prayers go out to all of you, and wish we could be there with you during this sad time.
Your cousin, Kathy (Andrajack) Olson
