Another Angel in Heaven, as she was at Sander's Glen for the last 10 years. She was a friend to everyone. Treated as a teenager as no one could keep up with her. She loved her morning paper!! She was the treadmill queen and always a huge help in all programs, whether it was passing out napkins and cake or helping to assist someone somewhere. We will miss her terribly and out hearts go out to the family. Nancy Reid

My Staff, my Family, and I offer the deepest condolences on Tresa's passing. She and Grover were the happiest and most embracing couple who graced my Family Practice. It was a sincere pleasure to share their health concerns and listen to their tales of deep family love. They are both missed and their memories are cherished. May they rest in peace, together again.
