    I have many fond memories of Therese!! I always enjoyed my visits to Chicago area and stopping by the book store with my Mom. Within minutes I would see cousins from the Smrstik’s and Ziglers. Much love was shown. I will miss her but never forget her laugh and her love.
    Love Frank and Debbie McCormick
