Oh honey, I have waited days to say something because I am just still in shock and disbelief that someone would take you from your beautiful babies. I am so heartbroken for them. You were a part of my life for 21 years and that wasn't long enough. I miss you so much and just want you back here, your babies want you back here, your family and friends want you back here. I just cannot comprehend this. I will never be able to understand. You will always be in our hearts and we are fighting everyday for justice for you. We will get it. We love you!!!!

Teresa and I used to work together and became fast friends. She asked me to help her plan her wedding before Jay Bee passed away. She was so happy and excited for the future... So much has happened in such a short time period to her and her family. I can only hope that she gets the wedding she always wanted in heaven. ❀️ I love you so much Teresa. RIP
