I worked with Theresa for almost nine years, and she is wonderful to worked with, she makes me feel at ease, in those eight years we worked together. Whenever I had a chance to see her at work she always had a story about her grandchildren, and her children, her garden and the hooks hoop. My special story is her Halloween story she decorated the house early, and she had a dead body in the bedroom headless, grandchildren asked her why she had a headless dead in the bedroom??? Then the two of us laughed. I missed her and I’m going to always my fund memories with her. RIP T. I will missed your rusty voice, and your laughed and wonderful smiles. Benita D.

I only knew Theresa for about 2 years working in the ED. Every day I saw her she always said hello and asked how I was. She never got angry or annoyed with anyone. She was the calm in the storm. She will be truly missed.

I loved working with her! She gave me so many great costume pieces and this great pin art lion for the school. She was one of the most welcoming people there. I will miss her.
