    I met Teresa at church, as we played in the bell choir together. She was always filled with joy, excitedly telling me about concerts she had attended and the next one coming up on her calendar. Mostly, I enjoyed seeing all the photos on her phone that she lovingly showed me of her grandsons. It was obvious how much she adored her family. May God comfort you with His peace and sweet memories.

    Bethany and Johnny, we loved your Mom so much. I can’t ever remember a time when I didn’t see a smile on her face. You two and the twins were her whole world and she made sure the world knew it. You are in our thoughts and prayers. We will miss Teresa tremendously!

    Johnny and Bethany, Teresa was such a joy to be around and work with at LCHS. She did so much to make life easier for those of us who taught there and always smiled while doing it. So sorry for your great loss. May you find peace and comfort in the days ahead.

    Sweet, Zany Teresa! Oh how my heart aches! All of you in my youth group were considered “mine”. My girls, though so small, thought of our youth group as their sisters and brothers! Teresa blessed my heart in her own special way. I am writing this in disbelief. My prayers are for comfort and peace to surround her family. She was a jewel and I love her.
