I didnt know Tressa for long but in the small time frame I did have the privilege of being around her. We immediately clicked and she was so caring to me. She took me under her wing, looked out for me, gave me a shoulder to cry on, a friend to talk to and a lasting memory I will never forget. I am so sorry for your loss of someone so beautiful, caring loving and viverant. I am so glad that I had the privilege of meeting her. She will forever be missed and never forgotten.

My Dearest Tressa:

I am so sad that you are gone but know that you are no longer struggling. My heart breaks for your family. You were loved so much by each of them. I will miss your sweet beautiful smiling face and your goofiness that made everyone laugh. We had some special moments together that I will always treasure. Till we meet again. I love you!!!

God looked around his garden and found an empty space.
Then he looked down upon this earth and saw your tired face.
He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest.
God's garden must be beautiful because he only takes the best.

I love and miss you so much,

Aunt Yodi

First may God bless the family and friends as this beautiful young woman will be missed. I have known her since she was young kid. An nothing is harder then having to say goodbye to someone you love. So Tressa may you know through the grace of God just how much you meant and may you also be healed from all your suffering in this place here we call life. Till we meet again my young friend, Love Shell

Tressa and boonie came to Stephen and I’s home and raided my closet for any clothes she wanted! Her and I then went out and raided goodwills for a bunch of unnecessary this and that’s , and we hid everything in the back of Stephens Tahoe because I knew he’d be annoyed at me bringing more stuff home. Tressa and I bickered like nobody’s business but she was someone that I just couldn’t stay mad at long. Rest easy, love! We all miss you, already!

So sorry for your loss Patti, Shayla and the rest of the family. I remember her blond curly hair when she was a young girl. Haven't seen her in a few years but so shocked to hear of her passing. May you comfort each other at this time of sorrow.

I remember you as a beautiful little girl coming over my house to hang with my kids and swimming at my brother George house. I hope he was there to welcome you when you crossed over to the other side. I pray you have found happiness and peace in the arms of Jesus.
