Teresa - I loved you like a sister even though you were my sister-in-law. I will always remember the fun times in North Carolina and Michigan. Hanging out in your pool, having a few cold ones and laughing all the time. I still have the placemat with all of the southern phrases and how we laughed trying to make sentences out of them. There are many that miss your smile and how you always were ready to help anyone in need. You suffered with health issues but now you are at peace. I love you and will miss you always. xo
