Dear Racette Family,

I was so sorry to read about Theresa's passing in the paper. Every time I ran into her at Wmst Commons, she just made my day brighter. She always had a smile for me, and would reach out for my hand. She was such a lovely woman, and still so pretty into her mid eighties. Theresa was consistently upbeat when we spoke, and despite how uncomfortable she looked in that wheelchair, she never said a complaining word. I will surely miss seeing her when I visit my parents. My sincerest condolences go out to all of you.
