Tess will forever be my first little sister. We met when she was 8 at the bus stop in RIVERMONT and we hired her to walk our dog Maggie. Soon after I lost a baby in a awful tubular pregnancy and
Tess said "you would be the best big sister" so I drove down to Atlanta and joined Big Brothers Big Sisters. She became the big sister to my new little sister Amanda and was included in all the little sister fun!
She called me out of the blue one day back 6 years ago and took me ZIP LINING , it was spur of the moment and I've got to say it was one of the best times ever! We laughed and zipped all day long together, I will forever cherish memories of her big smile.
Always laughing smiling and cracking jokes she could light up a room. My heart goes out to the family, Mary especially. Prayers and Hugs will be praying her forward. God has caught her in the wings of his Love and she will be forever at peace. RIP TESSLA!
