  1. Dear Carol, Michael and Tess: Please accept my heartfelt sympathy and prayerful support as you grieve the loss of your mother. With love and prayers, Stan Tuchalski

  2. Carol and family so sorry for the loss of your Mom. She was the last of the old neighborhood gang. So many fond memories. Bee Brown

  3. I remember Teresa well. I met Teresa in 2014 at Golden Oaks. Sometimes, I was able to get her to sit on the porch with my mother and me. After my mother, Verla Brady, went to Heaven, I occasionally would stop to see Teresa and send her cards. I will miss Teresa. She always sat in the corner chair near the window.
