Tim called to tell me about the passing of your mom. Michael and i send our condolences. What a bitter-sweet event for the Barrett family! I remember Teresa's smile and her spunk. I appreciated hearing about her over the years from Tim or Sue in how active she was in many endeavors and so devoted in her spiritual life. She raised some great kids. And i am sure she touched countless lives in her 91 years. God bless you all as you move into new chapters of your lives.
