  • Dear Bill, thank you for all you love and attention to Theresa. She wrote to me in spring and hoped to come to Crivitz to visit me and so I could meet you. Then she also sent me a card and a letter when she heard that I had some medical tests done. It’s a shame that we couldn’t meet. God be with you in your time of sorrow. We know she is with Jesus and isn’t having anymore pain. I hope you have some comfort in that. Love and prayers, Aunt Margaret (Theresa’s God Mother)
