Therese touched the lives of many people, both in Haiti and in the United States, not only with her smile and generosity, also with a loving heart and an amazing sense of humor. Never a selfish sole, she cared for friends and family alike, by providing food, shelter and any aid she could within her means, because she loved and enjoyed helping others. She was a devoted Catholic and lived a very healthy and religious life style.

The family wishes to express their gratitude to Kindred Hospice for the care and compassion giving to Therese.
