My wife Mary and Teresa golfed in the Sherwood ladies league. We would occasionally play a round with Teresa and John. Mary passed away on April 3, five days before Teresa. I’m sure she did that to get a couple of practice rounds before Teresa arrived. I’m sure they have golf courses in heaven and these two great ladies are loving it.

So sorry to hear about Teresa's passing. My wife and me knew her and John a long time starting when we met at the Parkinson's Support Group in Merrillville. Later we began our own group in Hammond and Teresa and John were active and loyal members. They also worked hard to ensure that our fundraisers were successful. Teresa was a warm, funny lady whose attitude towards life was an inspiration to us all. To see the circle of life be completed Teresa and John were introduced by my cousin Doug in the house I grew up in. She was an avid golfer and I remember the day she showed our group her skydiving video. She will be missed and I hope her and John have been reunited as the loving couple they were here on Earth.
