While we never had the pleasure of meeting Thomas, "Tom", "Tommy", "Uncle Tommy", or "Olli", (as Teresa spoke of him to us), we could tell Teresa and Olli were very much in love. Teresa was proud of Olli and took pride in his accomplishments. Teresa took great care of my mother (Marilyn Arney) at Harmony and we are sure she took great care of Olli in his time of need as well. We pray that Teresa and her family take comfort in God during this time of sorrow and that they know it was God's own plan. Blessings, Janet and Steve Charles
