She was a great woman and a true fighter. I can remember the times talking about Queen and much more. I lost contact with my brother for years, and because of her, we were able to meet again. God bless you Teresa. May you Rest in Peace.

Although science says blood makes you family, Gran Gran did not see it that way. She seen everyone as her family, she’s helped, she’s cared, she’s listened and she’s been there. She’s one of the most memorable woman I will forever keep close to me in my heart. Gran gran treated myself as well as my siblings just as her own grandchildren. I will forever be grateful for all the talks all the advice and all the love she’s given and shown. My favorite memory is seeing her at every holiday event.. Regardless if it was Easter, 4th of July, Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc. she always made sure she would try to be there and she was. You are a very special person gran gran and your babies miss you more than life itself. Please continue to watch over them ❤️

Teresa and I had so many memories but our cross country trips were the highlight of our adventures. We used to laugh and say we were like Thelma & Louise. Thank you so much for the laughter, good times and memories you have left me with. I love you always, and will miss you until we meet again my friend.
