    Today is sept 29, 2010. My sweet wife Vicky and I(Mel) were married on this day. My wife died 8 years ago just short of our 40 wedding Anniversay. Our son Michael and Mandy, new daughter in law will be married on Oct 15, 2010 on St Teresa's feast day. Pray to God thru St Teresa to bless their marriage and life together. Vicky would be proud of her son and Mandy. I gave Mandy Vicky's wedding ring. Say a prayer to St Teresa for Mel who loves and misses Vicky so much that only tears can say how much that is until we meet again in heaven.

    St. Theresa is patron saint for headaches, I understand. Is she helpful with the mentally ill. A Catholic Healer asked me to pray to her for my mentally ill daughter.
