I enjoyed working with Theresa and getting to know her over the years. We rescued a few kittens together (which I still have 7 years later) and shared many laughs. Im so saddened to hear of her passing and my heart hurts for the family and for Vicki. My love to all.

Theresa, I hope you have now found rest and peace. I will forever be grateful of the memories I shared with you when we were just kids back in junior high and high school. Thank you for being my friend.

Theresa was a beautiful, brilliant, shy young lady when she came to our school. She had the kindest heart. I looked up to and admired her. I remember being so excited the first time she invited me to stay the night. I loved Theresa like I love all my class of 95 classmates. She is souring high with angel’s wings. #untilwemeetagain

I am so sorry to hear of her family’s loss. I pray that her , and Jean are embracing right now. I will always remember her smiling face. Far too young. We only have a short line on our tombstone between two dates.

Theresa was a very kind and loving person. She once stayed home from work to stay with me when I was in much pain after smashing my finger. There were also many good times. I will always remember her beauty and sense of humor. She’s missed by many.

I haven’ t been able to contain my emotions as I see her picture and remember her, not only as a math teacher, but even more in my memories of that young, beautiful, quiet girl/lady that I was around often because of my construction work that I did w/ her dad, Jean Pierre (for that is how I always addressed him, for he was one of my very best friends, and I still miss him terribly though I wouldn’t want him to return from his place in paradise to this selfish and sinful world that we are still in).

Theresa was a wonderful coworker at Harp’s but most of all a great friend. I cherish the memories of her. The time she brought her guineas home, the little kitten she rescued from work, how she shared her garden with me, talks and tears we shared about missing our Dads. I’m definitely a better person for having had her as a friend.

Theresa was a coworker at Harp’s office and a friend. She had the sweetest little smile. It saddens my heart to know her life was taken at such a young age. Prayers for all her family and friends that will miss her so much.

When I first moved to Fayetteville I did not know anyone.
I was working for Vicki and Theresa invited me over to spend my birthday with her. She was a kind and loving
person. She made me feel welcome and I will forever
miss her. The world lost a shining light of true beauty.
