  • When speaking with Eleanor Marriott today and she mentioned seeing Theresa's obit in the paper and because she was having computer difficulties I offered to send our condolences to you, Denise, and all your family. We, too, are old Halifax Infirmary employees who remember Theresa well and have wonderful memories of the 'good 'ol days' when we had such a great group of people to work with, and Theresa was one of those people. Because she worked in the cafeteria, we saw her every day and every day she had a smile, a joke and a good hearty laugh. She was one of a kind; she treated everyone like they were her very special friend and she always had a smile! May she Rest in Peace. Susan Cosgrove and Eleanor Marriott
