Teresa was a very thoughtful and sweet lady. She always put everyone else first. We shared so many laughs and good times when I lived in Atlanta. She baby sat my cat for me. We attended church together. I will always cherish her sweet and loving personality. I know she's here in spirit. Rest in Jesus's arms.❤
