I just want you to know how special your mom was to me. She taught me all the descant parts when I first joined the Blessed Sacrament choir back in 1993-94. I quickly learned all I had to do was follow Theresa and I&d learn the songs quickly, and that I did. I&ve always loved her voice and when we made the CD, the first time I listened to it and Panis Angelicus came on it brought me to tears! She was so special to me those years in choir. We sat by each other and she encouraged me so greatly and we often got in trouble for laughing. She&d say something that would crack me up and I&d be giggling so hard that Cecile would have to remind us to stay on task. Ha!

All that aside, I always saw her as a very beautiful and elegant woman. I wanted to be like Theresa in dress and in voice. I loved, loved her many hats and jewelry! I can&t carry off wearing a hat, and every time I&d see her in a new one I&d so wish I could look like she did wearing a hat. So elegant!

She will be greatly missed and I&ll always hold a special place in my heart for my Theresa.

Dear Ramzy and family,

My heart was saddened to read about the passing of your precious mother/grandmother. My prayers are with you and your family.

You had a wonderful father and mother. I felt privileged to meet them and enjoyed the visits I had with them in their home.

Theresa was a very special lady. If I can ever be of any help to you, I hope you will let me know. I will keep all of you in my heart and in my prayers.

Your friend,

We knew Miss Theresa years ago when we were at Blessed Sacrament. I will always remember the beautiful way she sang ""Ave Maria"". Thinking of it still brings tears to my eyes.
