What a caring, fun loving, wonderful aunt you were. Your house was always the center of everything, and you made it seem so effortless. Now that we are older we know it wasn't. We (everyone) were always welcome at any time, with food, laughter and most of all love. It doesn't seem real right now. When it all sinks in and settles down you will be sadly, sadly missed. Thank you Aunt Teresa for everything.

We love and are here for you Connie.

Love you,
Deloris and Bill

A few years after Greg (Teresa’s Grandson) and I started dating, I had the opportunity to meet Teresa in Tennessee in 2001. I knew in an instant she was special and I loved her immediately. I’ll never forget when years later after Greg and I were married with children, “Nanny” ( Teresa), drove across the country with Connie to come visit Greg and our family in Arizona in 2009 or when her and Connie drove to Florida to meet us on vacation in 2012. She was such a sweet, spirited, genuine soul whose memory will fill our hearts for all time. She made us laugh every time we FaceTimed with her! I’m so lucky to have had Nanny in mine our children’s life. She will be missed and held closely in our hearts always. Peace, Love and Serenity be ever with you, Nanny!! We love you to pieces.

❤️Much Love ❤️
Renee (Greg’s wife)

I am sad at the recent passing of my aunt Teresa. But I will celebrate her life as she would have wanted us to. Her home was always a gathering place for friends and family. I always looked forward to visiting her on our trips to Knoxville. Her chicken soup and witty personality were always appreciated. Her love for Connie was obvious to anyone who knew her. May she rest in peace and may God grant Connie stenngh in this time of sadness.
Love, Paul
