So sorry for the loss of your mother. I have so many fond memories of the farm, sleep overs and so many good meals cooked by her. She always had a smile and a contagious laugh that brought joy to the room. My parents will miss her!

Tressa always had time to talk and to say a kind word. Even when we talked the last time at church and she wasn’t feeling well, she still had a smile on her face. She was a special lady, indeed! May God bless you all and may He put His loving arms around you to give you comfort and peace.

What a great saint that has left us to be with Jesus. I will not forget her smile and kind words that made me feel welcome as a part of the De Mann family. My thoughts and prayers for comfort and peace go out to the family
