    My dear sweet friend, you will be truly missed. Thank you for all the laughter through the years. We’ll keep your family in our thoughts. Much Love.

  3. We lost a phenomenal soul, but I know the struggles have passed and you are at peace and pain free. Thank you for leaving us with a lifetime of loving stories, antidotes, and memories. I still want to read the book you were writing. Every time I go to Giant Eagle in South Euclid, I stand still and we hug all over again. Even in the midst of your battle, you smiled and spoke positive words to the universe. You were always inspirational. God blessed us all with the opportunity to meet you many moons ago at Progressive Insurance. (Never a dull moment) We laughed out loud a lot.

    2 Corinthians 5:8
    Absent from the body- present with the Lord. I am confident and pleased to know this truth. Rest In Peace my sister.

  4. I will never forget your infectious smile, genuine heart, and ability to light up a room. You will be forever missed and never forgotten.

    Therese and I went to Regina High School together. I remember she could always make me laugh. I’m happy she got to attend our 40th class reunion last year. She will be dearly missed but kept in my thoughts and prayers.

  9. Very sorry to hear of the passing of such an amazing woman!! I will always remember the fantastic humor you had!! Rest in Peace beautiful lady!!

  10. Thea, Chuck, Chuckie and Katie, So very sorry to learn of Theresa’s passing. Sisters and aunts are such precious gifts. Praying your memories of her bring much comfort to each of you now and in the days ahead. Love to all.

  11. My deepest sympathy, I loved every second working with Therese at Progressive. The funniest person I have ever met. Even at the beginning of her illness she still found humor to brighten others day. What an amazing soul, and I will miss her deeply.

  12. I met Therese at our first Jazz Fest. I sat and talked with her and LJ and discovered they lived in the neighborhood. I encouraged her to come to one of our Sunday worship services and she did. I had great pleasure in singing next to her in our Vine Choir. She is sorely missed. I loved her wonderful persona. Will always remember her!

  13. My sincere condolences to LJ and family. Therese was a wonderful person and a talented singer. I will always remember her gorgeous rendition of “Were You There”; and her dry sense of humor which always kept the mood at choir rehearsals lighthearted. Therese will be missed very much.

  15. To the family of Therese:
    Please accept my condolences. I met Therese in choir at South Euclid UCC. She made an impact immediately. She was warm and encouraging. Her wit and humor kept things moving. She freely and humbly shared her musical knowledge and gifts. Her organizational skills kept us on track. Therese was truly a gift from God.
