Relation: ushering with Theresa at church

Terry was one of the first people that we got to know attending St Anne’s Church and then when we became involved in ushering she was always willing to lend a helping hand as she occupied the pew ahead of us. She had a great smile and we looked forward to seeing her every Saturday night at mass. To Dennis and Jennifer, our sincere condolences and even though we cannot be there with you in body, we are saying a prayer for your mom/grandmother. It will be strange when we come back this fall and not have her there. Our thoughts are with you at this time, may your memories sustain you in the difficult times ahead. Take care, God bless – John and Lorette Gunnell
