Teri was a sweet lady. I know her from being a long time friend of my dad's, Jerry Letey. They went to school together in Delta & kept in touch over the years. They always enjoyed each others company and the times they spent together when Jerry was in CO either living or visiting. They talked on the phone often & sent cards to each other over the years as well. It was a special friendship for both. A good laugh was always shared too. She will be missed greatly by Jerry and all who knew her. Sending thoughts & prayers to her family and friends during this difficult time.
