  • We are so sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family at this difficult time. Teresa was a great friend and co-worker.

  • To Mom,Dad,Kelli,and David…My heart is heavy and there are no words that can describe my sense of hurt for each of you…I know your pain is immense and unconsolable. There are no words that I can offer that would deliver you from your grief and loss. I understand the pain of losing a parent, and a sibling however I will never know the pain of having to bury a child. I know it is not within the normal life order for parents to bury their children. Children should have to bury their parents.

    Please know that I have prayed for the Lord to bring you PEACE, and give you the strength that you will need to go through this valley.

    Teresa was so young to be called home and taken from us. I only know that the human side of us never wants to relinquish our love ones, when it is their time to cross over Teresa is with Jesus now and although she was loved by so many and loved many in return We will miss her physical presence in the remainder of our time here on this earth but we will see her again. until then cherish the memories that you made with her….I love you …so much.
