Prayers to all the family... I didn't know Therese as well as other families members. Camille drove bus #6 as I was growing up, Sharon is a classmate, Rick graduated with Kevin, Craig and Cheryl are a part of the MS Self Help group, and Gayle was a co-worker for many years! May you all find comfort in your memories with your Mom and know that she is dancing with your Dad again in a place full of beauty. Deepest sympathies to all...
