Just moved back to the Brockville area and was planning to visit Theresia soon. So sad to hear of her passing. I have so many wonderful memories of her and Mike and being so welcome in their home after our family moved here from NS. To Mike, Paul, Mario & Inga I send you my thoughts & prayers. She was a gracious and welcoming lady and she will be greatly missed.

Michael, Paul, Mario & Inga, my deepest condolences in the passing of your mom. It's been many years but back in the day she was always a gracious host in welcoming family friends. Her values and caring are revealed in the wonderful family that she raised.
My mom also spoke highly of her, she will be sorely missed.

Our deepest sympathies to the Veenstra families. Theresia was a beautiful lady of character and strength. She has left a wonderful legacy in her children and grandchildren.
Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers during this very sad time.
He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death' or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. ... Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
