Therese will always be remembered for her strong faith in God, her love of family and friends, and her beautiful sense of humor.
My thoughts and prayers to Therese's family during such a difficult time. I worked with Therese at Medpay and really enjoyed Therese's humor. She was my buddy and a good friend. I will surely miss her. May your family find comfort one another and in the Lord. If there is anything I can do please do not hesitate to contact me. Peace be with you.

To the Kale family - my thoughts and prayers are with all of you. I have wonderful memories of spending time with Therese going clear back to High School. Please be comforted by one of my favorite Bible passages,Isaiah 40:28-31: 28. "Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. 29. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. 30. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; 31. But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint."
In God's Love,

I will miss you Therese! You were a great wife to my dad and a good friend to me. I have so many fond memories of you. Only a month ago we spoke on the phone for well over an hour. We shared our hurt, our sorrow... and managed to get in a few laughs. Travis - Trenton - Kayla - Your mom loves you soooo much. She never stopped bragging about you all. Especially her grandson. I'm so sorry for your loss. My prayers are with you.
