A beautifully written tribute.
Uncle Jack, Jo-Anne and Julie, my heart goes out to you over the loss of Aunt Teresa. I know how hard it is to say good-bye to those we love and while it may be a blessing for those going to heaven, our lives will never be the same.
We are visiting with Cy & Theresa in Halifax right now, and Cy and I remembered our Mom this morning, as Eva left us way too early, 23 years ago today. We know that she is welcoming her sister in heaven and that alone offers a little reprieve from this sad time.
I will always remember the visits to your home, where Aunt Teresa welcomed us with open arms and her infectious smile. My only wish is that we had lived closer as we were growing up, as I know Mom very much missed her family, and I always wanted to be closer to my aunts, uncles and cousins.
Aunt Teresa (and Uncle Jack) brought me back to Ottawa one summer when you were visiting us out west. For two weeks, as a young teenager, I was totally spoiled by a loving and caring family who went out of their way to make me feel very special. It is a time that I hold dear to my heart and I will always remember Aunt Teresa's kindness, and her special laugh, and only wish I had been able to spend more special moments with her and the rest of you.
Love and hugs to all of you, and while we will not be able to be there in person for the funeral, we will be there in spirit and say a special prayer for Aunt Teresa on that day.

My condolences to you and your family on the passing of Teresa. I know that it is hard to bear now, but remember that death is only the end of physical life and beginning of eternal life. Just know that I am here for you. My fond memories from the Montfort Hospital bring you comfort during this hard time. My prayers go out to you and your family.

Aunt Teresa was a blast to be around. Such a generous, giving lady. Always a great time joking with each other. Judy and I will sorely miss her!! May she rest in peace.
