Theresa was very special to me as we spent alot of time together in activities here at the Manor.  I loved her spunk! She liked me to keep her busy and I enjoyed keeping her busy! I have lots of memories of her as we all do.  I want to send my deepest sympathy to everyone…her very loving family as I will also miss seeing all of you and your visits to the Manor. I am so sorry that I won’t be able to attend her service on Friday as I will be at an all day seminar but do know that my sympathy, thoughts, prayers and love are with all of you!   Sharon Krushinski
