Dear Frank Clay and Gord,
Please accept my heartfelt sympathy on the death of Theresa. She was a wonderful person and I feel blessed to have known her. I will never forget the story of Frank phoning to tell her
"Teresa sell the house, we're moving to England"! There are no women like her anymore!
May she rest in peace. I will have a Mass offered for her soul.
