Jack, your wife and everyone's mother, was admired by so many people. she was an inspiration to so many of us who lived in the neighbourhood. i remember babysitting for my aunt many years ago, who also lived in the neighbourhood. when she was in the hospital having a baby, she told me that if I needed anything, just call Theresa! she will be missed!
