I worked at Overton Elementary with Teresa. She always made school a happy, pretty place to be. There was nothing she wouldn't do to help. I am sad that she has left this world, but I know she is in a better place.

Teresa aka "Terry" to me. Terry has been a long time friend. I met her at Jackson Elementary. She always had a smile. Making us laugh. Still remember her as a cheerleader in Jr high. She had school spirit. Even though we went our separate ways every time we run into each other it was like time stood still. Alway picked up where we left off. We will miss your smile & laughter my friend. May you Rest In Peace.
