CandleI would like to extend my sympathy and prayers to Theresa's family. I met, and got to know Theresa during her time at Valley Vista. I enjoyed the talks we had while helping with her care. I remember especially, her GREAT love for her family, as she shared stories and memories of her life. I remember also, learning to make her bed as she liked it,(and how pleased she was), and trying to find her "missing" socks, and how happy she was when she got all her laundry back. I always enjoyed seeing her, and having a little time to talk with her. May her memory and love , comfort, and be with you all. Rest in peace Theresa, Susan
