We are missing Teresa soo much. I could call her anytime and she would always answer with”sweet tater”. That’s what she called me because I am from Idaho. We didn’t know Teresa long in years but she was family to us. We would like to plant a tree for her. Any recommendations Sissy? Love Gina

I am so sorry to learn of Teresa's passing. I have so many fond memories of her. We rode the same school bus for years and played on the basketball team together. She was kind and funny and so much fun to be with. I know she will be missed by all who knew her.
