My mom was a gentle, hard-working woman who was devoted to her family and friends. She worked in the medical field for over 35 years, 12 of which were fulfilling her passion of being an R.N. Teresa was diagnosed with an aggressive type of lung cancer in October 2022. She remained vigilant and strong throughout her treatments. She was a fighter and I’ll always remember her as that. Thank you, Mom, for showing me how to be an amazing mother, how to tackle my fears and obstacles life throws at me, and most importantly, thank you for being the best Nannie to your grandkids. They will forever treasure the time on earth they got to spend with you. Fly free Mama, let your wings now guide you home. Forever in our hearts.
