Baby girl, I don’t even know what to say! You were so full of life and loved by so many!! I didn’t realize how young you were especially after working with you and knowing you as a friend. You will never be forgotten and will always be remembered as a bright light in so many lives. Until we see each other again, I will cherish the memories I have of you!! I love you very much!!

Teresa was a amazing advocate. She was very passionate about helping victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. She was a wonderfully supportive supervisor to our team. I will be forever grateful that she was in my life and a member of the SAAFE House team. She touched many lives with her genuine caring and passion to help others. We stayed in touch after she moved and her desire was to re enter the field and go back to school. She had a zest for life and enjoyed the outdoors. A great sense of humor and a wonderful laugh and smile. I will miss her and seeing all she was to become. Rest easy sweet girl. You were loved.
