    Teresa was one of the kindest and sweetest people I have ever known. She always had a smile on her face and love in her heart for everyone. I am very blessed to be able to call her my friend and I will miss her and her laugh tremendously.

    Memories of our young days at Lookout Valley are priceless. Always enjoyed seeing and talking to her during the years. May God grant you all his peace and comfort.

    Teresa was one of the most enthusiastic people to be around. She and I worked together at the Tennessee Department of Human Services for many years and I always called her “Sis.” I cannot believe that she is gone. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family.

    Sending love and prayers to her family and friends. Teresa was a kind hearted friend that always listened to what anyone had to say and the moment you spoke to her you felt like you had known her for years.. She will be dearly missed.
