Aunt Skeet, You were a one of a kind and I loved that about you! You made many people smile. Every time I met a Silver Bluff worker I would say, Do u know my Aunt Skeeter and they all knew you and loved you. As we age and loose some abilities we take for granted, like speech, getting to say what is on your mind, it is heartbreaking. I know u knew what u wanted to say and just couldn’t get it out anymore. I wish I could have read your mind and spoke for you. I know my mind and yours thought a lot alike so I appreciate that gift u gave me. I get called Skeeter and Teresa a lot and that I consider a Blessing!! I love the spitfire and the love that you 2 taught me. Thank you for many years of fun and laughter and lots of chit chats. You will be missed on Earth but Heaven will be lucky to have you. Xoxo

She had great taste and really could do anything she set her mind to. She was a special person in many ways. We loved her very much. Bye, Aunt Skeeter! Love, June and David
