Dear Windt Family, it saddens me to hear that Therese has left us, but gladdens me to know she is out of pain, and up and walking and smiling beside Our Lord. I think He needs her as a walking buddy now. She was so very brave, diginified and gracious, always with a smile and a generous laugh at my feeble jokes. I was honored to have known her, if only for a short year.
Sincerely, Linda Foss
Jim and Delores,
If I had to choose the one event in my life that “turned” everything around; when I felt of value and
wasn't a stranger in a strange land, it was when Therese called and asked me to go bowling.
Therese was my first love growing up, and I was her first love; it was our second puberty. I'll speak
for both of us, growing up once was sufficient but we didn't have much choice in the matter. Which
reminds me of a line from a song we both enjoyed by Robbie Robertson, ‘you got to play the hand
that's dealt, that's what the old man always said.' My old man did always say that too!
And about bowling, I never realized until then that bowling was evil. ?
I will see you on the 14th, the 30th anniversary of my TBI.
I remember, exactly, how/why we met..we, both, had the same speech therapist and SHE is the one that decided we should meet because we were so much alike - that was 25 years ago and a million memories!
Dear Jim, Dolores and family,
Therese was a tremendously loving and driven woman, a pleasure to know and she encouraged numerous people. I know you'll miss her and will be praying for you.
Dear Windt Family- We are very sorry for your loss. I believe we only met Therese a handful of times but it was always lovely see her and to see such strong family bonds. She was blessed to be surrounded by so many people who loved her. The obit was beautifully written and the slide show captured so many beautiful photographs of her. You are all in our thoughts and prayers. Fondly, the Zatt family
