I always enjoyed spending time with Aunt Theresa on the beach in summers and have fond memories of visiting her in CT. A favorite memory was when we baked cookies and added too much butter. We had a good laugh over ruined cookies. I think of her every time I use butter while baking and will always do so.

A favorite memory is of baking cookies with her as a kid and we made a mistake and added too much butter to them. I think of her every time I use butter in baking and will always do so.

We are very sad to hear of Aunt Theresa's passing... She and Uncle Tom meant the world to me and my family. We loved visiting with them each summer in Maine and hosting them at our home in New Hampshire.
Miss you Aunt Theresa... 💔
