I have so many wonderful childhood memories of this beautiful lady. At this time of year I recall Madame Therese making Christmas arrangements with my mom and other friends at our dining room table. There was no shortage of laughter, almost always led by Therese. She spread joy to many of us during her journey on earth. My condolences to her family, especially her children.
