Teresa was a kind and caring woman who always put others first. She never missed an opportunity to remind someone of how special they were. My thoughts and prayers go out to my aunt Carole and cousin Stephen during this difficult time. Rest in Peace, Teresa.

My loving Niece Teresa was so Bubbly and forver spreading joy through life. As we will miss her I am comforted that I know she was greeted by her Dad Dennis and her Uncle Wayne as she entered the Golden Gates. She is whole again once more and pain free and our whole Family can now find peace in her passing. Prayers go out to my entire Family for healing. Teresa will forever be in our Hearts. Her loving Aunt Jean

My niece Teresa will be remembered as a kind and gentle soul, who would lend a helping hand in any way she could. With her strong faith, she is now in the presence of our Lord, whole and perfect again. I'm sure my sister Carole and nephew Stephen will be at peace knowing this. You will always be remembered in my heart. RIP, Teresa

Teresa was my niece and she will be greatly missed. Recently in the hospital, as Teresa was fighting for her life, I showed her the Aggie band playing at the halftime football game. She was very weak, but a smile and nod told me she enjoyed listening to the great Aggie band. She loved those Aggies! Family, take solace in the knowledge that Teresa is in a better place, welcomed by the Father. RIP, Teresa.

Teresa and I go way back. Panera Bread back. It was my first job back in 2005 and I couldn't have ask for a better trainer. She had every customers name memorized and I was so impressed that I myself strived to work just as hard as she did, though I never took the opportunity to tell her. As the years passed on we always stayed in touch and I would go back as visit her off and on. Now she is gone and I wish I had taken every opportunity to see her or tell how she transformed my life in work and in private. She will be missed very deeply. She is with her King now and I tell her in my prayers how truly she impacted my life!
