My name is Rhonda, and I worked with and cared for Theresa for 3 years from 1991-1994. I just saw the obituary in the newspaper and missed the memorial service, so I wanted to express my condolences to her family and friends. Theresa was so nice to work with, and such a sweet girl. I am very sorry, and wanted to give her family my heartfelt condolences. I am glad I was able to know Theresa and spend time with her, if only for a short period of time.

With sympathy,

Rhonda Hampton
