Theresa, my sweet memories of your Mom were during the sixties -during our teenage years, and I can still vividly recall the lively,fun spirited Mom that she was. Friday night sleepovers at your house always involved your Mom helping to make our time enjoyable. She always acted younger than her years! The special connection you two had as mother and daughter was also exemplary. Blessings to you for being such a loyal, caring daughter. Love you,
