Dear Treires Family: We want you to know how much we admired your mother. She was a beautiful woman whom we will always remember her for the kindness that she displayed toward all. You are in our prayers during this time of sadness. The homily so accurately discribed the Mrs. Treires that we knew. May God bless you.

John and Family, My deepest sympathy for the loss of your mother. I remember all the times she welcomed me into your home, especially so we could practice our 'band' for the 6th grade dance. She was a blessing to all.
