Theresa was my dearest and best friend for over 30 years. She was always there for me-when my father passed away, when my mother passed away, when Len and I got married, and helping me clean out my family home and settle my mother's affairs. We took Theresa on our Alaska cruise, to the mountains numerous times, to Sanibel Island and to Dunnellon to spend time with us on vacations and to celebrate her birthday. She enjoyed day trips to Fernandina and St. Augustine with us many times, as well as art festivals in Mt. Dora, the Shrimp Festival and the Nights of Lights by boat this year. All you had to say to Theresa was "let's go." She always was up for a trip and loved to go and see new places with us. Friday nights were our special time-"girls' night out" every Friday night, without fail, unless one of us had family plans that interfered. (Then we went on Thursday night). We had our special holiday traditions and loved decorating for all of the holidays. Theresa always helped me with our yard and as she loved yard work and working in her own yard. This weekend she was coming to help me plant the caladium bulbs, as she always did. There will be a huge hole in my and Len's heart now with her gone, that nothing will ever fill. She was a treasured member of our little family and we loved her dearly. We know she is with the Lord, and that we will see her again. But the pain of her loss is overwhelming -we love you, Theresa-and will miss you more than you will ever know.
