My prayers are with Tracy, Sean, Scott and all of their families on the physical loss of Teeta. She and I went through nurses' training together and became fast friends. We had lost touch for a few years and Teeta found me again and I got to see her a couple of times in the past few years. You will be missed, my friend. Praying God continues to comfort all of you!

Aunt Teeta was a special lady and a very sweet aunt. I have very wonderful memories of her in Las Vegas when Lyle and I were growing up. She let me stay with her and the kids while I did an internship in Albuquerque. She was all about family and her kids. Her kids were her world. Scott, Sean, Tracy and your children.. my heart breaks for you. I know you've lost your biggest champion. God bless.

I just heard and am so sorry to hear that she's gone. I knew her for probably 20 years thru working for her insurance agent. We had lunch a couple of times and would spend a long time talking whenever she came to the office. I considered her a friend and have missed her and her family so very much. She was a wonderful person and I loved her.

I am so lucky to have grown up experiencing Teeta's love. Her compassion and generosity flowed freely and inspired me to show the same care in all my relationships. I love her so much and her spirit will live on in all the people she touched in her life.

Oh, sweet, kind, thoughtful, generous, loving Teeta. The last time I saw you I was surprised by one of your incredible consoling hugs. When I was so sad and in pain, the person that I always thought would be there for me was not, but YOU were and YOU called me to check on me and to ensure I had what I needed and YOU came to my bed side and YOU told me to hold on. YOU thought of me when you traveled and YOU were a gift from the heavens when I had little else. Hoping one day your loved one understood that everything you ever did or said was out of pure love. You were pure love and joy of the heart. Rest well and grab a good seat at the feast ?
