    I’m so sad to hear about Theresa’s passing. I lived in Akeley with my father Merle and she was a shining smile in our day when we saw her at the store. Forever a beautiful and loving woman. Kind made my Dad smile and I am heartbroken. I don’t know what to say except your family is in my prayers and please know the number of people who loved her.
