  2. Sincere condolences to the family of Theresa. I was acquainted with Maureen and Mark in the mid 1970’s while residing with Ted, Maureen’s future husband also now deceased. Maureen ,her Mom Theresa and Dad Edwin always added a tremendous amount of grace to our house on their visits. I remember joyful dinners at Christmas and other holidays both in the rented house I shared with Ted and in the Boyes’ home. I was particularly touched by the warmth and hospitality showed to me by the Boyes family. Am very grateful to this day . God Bless you all!
