I was so sorry to hear of Teresa’s passing, my prayers are with all the family. Dwight and Teresa were our neighbors many years ago and our children played together when. We also went to church with them and a lot of her family. Many happy memories of those days long ago. God Bless all of you and looking forward to the day we are all reunited in Heaven and can rejoice in the Lord’s presence.
I remember Teresa from the 1990’s when we worked at Roanoke Chowan Human Services Center…..she was at the receptionist desk. I always liked her and thought she was a wonderful person. My heartfelt wishes to you and all the family in this trying time! You’ve earned your angel wings Teresa……fly high!

Our prayers and thoughts to your family during this time.
Mr. Allen and Family, I’m truly sorry for your loss. I know that this is a difficult time, but remember the good Lord never makes a mistake. Continue to stay strong during this most difficult time and the months to come. May God continue to Bless you and your Family.
I remember with great fondness the first time we met; she and I instantly connected on a spiritual level – I knew her as my sister and as an angel God put on earth to bless others with her love and as a woman of faith. She will forever be in my heart.
The Griffin family would like to offer our sincere condolences to the entire family. Know that it’s not forever nor is it the end, it just means “I miss you until you meet again”. May God be with you and your family during this difficult time. You will always be in our prayers.
