No words can tell you how much I’m going to miss you. I will miss the phone call everyday as I set in traffic trying to get home from work, and yes Teresa they did put enough spikes down for the fake grass to hold it down. Me and hundreds of people you’ve impacted over the years will love you, and miss you very much!

T, I don’t know where to even begin, but I know for certain that I will miss you so much. The world will not be the same without you.

I remember you always reminding me of the times you and Tammy would sit around our dining room table and place me in the middle of the table while you guys gossiped. You’d always say that I was so curious as to what and who you two were talking about. I was just a little guy but you had fond memories of those times.

I remember growing up and discovering what “good” music was from you and Tammy. Going to all the concerts we went to together and just laughing our asses off the whole time. Memories I will have forever.

I could go on and on about the fun times at your “Junesta Fiesta”, drinking margaritas, listening to music, or just eating “medicinal” tootsie rolls and acting crazy. You were always Tammy’s best friend and mine as well.

I love you T, and I know that you wouldn’t want me or anyone to be sad moving forward. You will always be in our hearts and your spirit will truly live on here forever.

I first met Teresa when she came to see my band play. We soon discovered a connection as my father, Glenn Gamble, had been her high school math teacher at Lyons. Since that time she came to see me play several times, and always showed up at our annual Christmas Singalong with Steve Clark and Tim Elliott. I can still hear her asking for those "6 Johnny Depps" when we did the "12 Days of Christmas" song. Teresa was a kind and fun person who I will think of every year when we do the Christmas Singalong. Heaven has a beautiful new angel.

I remember Teresa and I having a discussion about trail mix, of all things, and how much we both loved a good one. She just smiled and said "Just wait till you try mine!" A week later she came over with a gallon bag stuffed so full it almost wouldn't zip shut, full of trail mix. But not just M&Ms and peanuts....oh no, not Teresa! It was filled with huge pieces of chocolate, some of it spicy. Exotic nuts, high quality dried fruits, delicious tidbits of all sorts. I know it cost a fortune to make. It was ridiculously heavy and took nearly 8 months to eat. That is what Teresa was was like....she went all out if she did something for you. She was full of sass and love. She loved the connection and healing that music brings to our lives, and was always at someone's show to be a part of that energy.
I could never get enough of her infectious smile, her easy manner, her monumental hugs, but now somehow I'll have to do without. With great saddness I say goodbye for now, dear lady. See you on the other side, T! We will all miss you terribly.

Such a bright spot in so many peoples lives, Teresa will be so very missed. Always zany fun clear back to high school years - I am so glad that I got to reconnect with you so many years later and so many miles away from our little town that we all love so much.
Anytime I see anything purple, a crazy pair of shoes, hear a great rock & roll song or have a margarita your memory will bring a smile to my face.
Peace and love to Bill and all of the family.
