The strangest memory came to me this evening- the smell of your little ?Chevy I think when you use to babysit us in Tipton. I loved hanging out with you and was so proud of you when you became a police woman. I know you’re gone, but you’re still with me and I loved you and your family. Xoxo

Teresa, your memory lives on. We grew up together, laughed and played.
Then you became a true hero, a police officer.
Watching the processional of police cars in our home town, there was an unreal silence.
You will NEVER be forgotten.

TJ,
A generation of years has come and gone since you were taken from us. I often wonder what it is like on the other side and where you exist and what your spirit is doing. I hope you can look after those left behind and keep those who need watching safe and sound.
Miss you darling girl and love you so much!

Dearest Teresa, I miss you so much. There are times when the girls look at me that I see you in them. Their gestures, the way they walk, laugh, smile. Especially smile. God is so good to me. Letting me have a little piece of you in my own children. Not a day passes withoutyou in my thoughts. I feel your spirit, and I know that we will be seeing you again soon. I love you.

T.J.,

I miss you more than ever, but I know your spirit is here with all of us. Please keep watching over our friends on the force, and our family & friends elsewhere. Help us become better in our daily struggles to listen to our counselor the Holy Spirit & do what is right. As God depends on us to love each other as he loves us, and there is no greater love than that of the Father, Son ,& Holy Spirit to all of us who have faith, that one day we will be chosen for the house of the Lord our Savior. God bless You, the Blue, & all who stand for justice and right in this world.
Your loving brother, Barry
