I'd like to extend my deepest condolences to all who've been impacted by the loss of this special young lady.

Over the years we lost contact, thankfully were able to reconnect on social media.

Teresa lived her life outloud for the Glory of God and with a contagious spirit.

I met Sister Teresa in Can of Arkansas at a Singles get together. She made you feel like a part of the group and I loved her spirit of friendship. She made you feel like she has known you for a while. Even though I just met her. Kept in contact with her through Facebook. Enjoyed her every time we talked. She will be greatly missed and many many prayers is with the family at this time.

Dear cousin.
I’m sorry for the pain you endured the past few months. I also mourn with the family.
However, this I know. You’d never want to return.
Love always

A tremendous talent for the kingdom!
I enjoyed our time in Jackson years ago with Teresa as our choir leader. I was honored to have led the Singles class while she was at Calvary. Our condolences to the family.

Teresa was Kind, Compassionate and Loved Her Family and Friends. My most recent memory of Teresa takes me back about 3 years ago. Right before David and I were married, she got some of us singles together for a Christmas weekend gathering filled with Christmas programs and events for 3 or 4 days, I had the best time of my life and I will never forget it. On the last night she had planned a personal wedding shower for me. She touched my heart ❤ and so many others by her thoughtfulness and the way she made you feel very special. We Love You Dearly and Miss You Already. Until We Meet Again My Precious Sister In The Lord.
