karen k Illness: Theresa Tooley aka treaties1 (223* d) RE: Theresa Tooley aka treaties1 06 Sep 08


This news brings tears to my eyes. Have been away from Mudcat for a few days so I'm just seeing this. I've never heard of Progressive Bulbar Palsy. I'm devastated that she will lose her ability to sing. My god, what a loss. Such an amazing voice. I first met Theresa in 2003 when she came with the Shellbacks to the Getaway. I was lucky to be at the gathering at Jerry and Ruth Rasmussen's and before that at a party at Judy Cook's in Maryland. In 2004 I was in England at the invitation of several Shellbacks and got to spend more time with her. The last time I saw her was the 2005 Getaway which has already been much mentioned here. I did not even know that Theresa had been ill.

Theresa, if you read this please know that I am thinking of you. I hope with all my heart that you will get the better of this. I would hate to see such a great voice silenced. I have been in awe of you and your voice and this news saddens me. Be well my friend.

Much love,
karen kobela, connecticut
