God gave me the privilege of knowing Theresa the last year. Although she had a hard time expressing herself on occasion.she could still sing and praise God with that beautiful alto voice. Even tho confined to wheelchair I never heard her complain one time. Elaine always had her dressed up along with a cute band in her hair and polished fingernails. It was such a blessing knowing Theresa and Elaine this short time and seeing their love for one another. I know the angels were singing along with Theresa as she entered heaven.
