Mrs. King, so many memories of you cooking for us each morning. Cooking for everyone on Thanksgiving. The trips to Brownwood, you helping us take the buckshot out of the rabbits. You playing the organ at Temple, First Baptist Richland Hills and so many other churches. The times in Big Spring seem so far away. I remember how you wanted to go back home from there and in the little Toyota we made the trips (never to look back). You kept us all so strong even when we to young to even understand. Mr. King is so amazing but you get a lot of the credit for that as well. He had you to take care of him and all of us. So, many memories of your kind heart can never be forgotten. Not only do I want to share some memories but thank you so much for helping us all. Your amazing, simplistic way you made people feel welcome and special, its a rare gift but will never be forgotten.

There was not a sweeter person than Tresa.

Rest in Peace.

Tresa always looked so beautiful. I always enjoyed visiting my cousin in Ft Worth. She was always smiling and treated me so nice. I will never forget.
