Hi Tom. Teri was the worlds greatest mom. She was always there for you. She was also an awesome cook. I loved eating at your house. She had more energy than anyone I have ever met. She was always busy working in the yard or walking. She was also very good at decorating. I remember one Christmas Hallmark knocked on your door and asked if they could take a picture of it and make it into a Christmas card. How cool is that? You are the only people I know who have a Christmas Card made by Hallmark! I will miss your mom!
