    I’m very sorry for the families loss! Theresa had a special place in my heart. She was the best landlord I ever had and a wonderful person. If you needed something she was always there even after not being a renter she was my friend she will truly be missed ♥️✝️✝️

    Theresa was one of my favorite customers. Always so positive and never failed to bring us cookies. You’ll be missed Theresa. Condolences to the family and friends.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to Mark, Joe, and Mary. I am so sorry to hear of Theresa’s passing. I always considered her to be an unofficial aunt. She was a very close friend of my mother and did much to help mom throughout the years.

    When I read Mrs. Piron passed my heart felt so sad. One of the best childhood memories my sister, brother and I have is when we’d go to Piron’s to pick our special Christmas tree out. My mom and dad made it such a special event for us I couldn’t sleep the night before. We’d always go when it was a little darker out so we could see the big bulb lights. I’d be dancing and prancing through the lot. We always found the best tree AND we always made sure we’d let them know. 😉 Thank you Mrs. Piron for making my Christmas always special. I graduated with Joe and know Laura. You and your family will be blessed with wonderful memories. You have my sincere condolences . Bless you during this difficult time.

    Dear Joe Mark and Mary,

    So sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. She was one of my favorite Aunts. I have such good memories of coming to your house when we were young. All the berry picking and swimming in the river, she is at peace and with your Dad now. You have my sincere condolences.
