We extend our heartfelt sympathy to Teresa's family & friends. We met her when our granddaughter, Elisha, married her son, Joe. We only had the pleasure of being with her a few times, but she always was so friendly & full of fun. Our thoughts & prayers are with you all as you remember the good times & celebrate her life.

My condolences go out to all of you who love this dear lady. I only met Teresa one time, but that was enough to know her vivacious personality and her charming wit. Such a wonderful person will never die because she lives on in the hearts of all the people her life has touched.

Joe and Amy, you had the sweetest most wonderful woman for a mother. She loved you both so much and lived every minute for the two of you. Joe you were already here before I met Teresa, but Amy I was there when you born. You were a very small premi and your mother was at the hospital every day to hold your hand and talk to you even before she could hold you. She willed you to live and thrive just as she did with Joe when he was born. No one could have meant more to her than you two. She loved you both and always will. Hang in there, with the knowledge that you will see her again one day in the loving embrace of God.

Teresa I miss your smile and laugh. We hadn't been friends very long but I will miss you forever. I know you are in heaven with my love and your friend Tom and the two of you are laughing and telling jokes. Your family are in my prayers, may the Lord give them strength and comfort.

Teresa was a precious friend, even as I had only known her briefly. Witty, soul filled, compassionate, pretty, intelligent and fun loving. She was happy about buying a home near the lake, and we were looking forward to living life to its fullest. A dear friend, I will miss her and her laughter. Rest in peace, sweet lady. I'll be seeing you. P.S. Happy birthday __

Love my sister dearly and she will be missed. Will hold on to the wonderful memories we made together. She was always giving of herself and there for anyone in need.

Joe, Amy, Elisha, John, Faye and family: Words cannot express how sad we are about Teresa's death. She was so full of life to lose hers so early. I have to trust that God needed her badly in his army or he wouldn't have taken her so soon. We are here for you day or night and forever more, for support or whatever you need. Love, Lynn, Debbie & Aunt Opal
