Teresa, I met you at Sacred Heart School and then again relief teaching at several others. We always loved a good chat and catch-up when bumping into each other. You were one amazing teacher, so bubbly and the kids loved you. I will always remember you for wearing your gorgeous brightly coloured dresses and your beautiful smile.
Sending your family and loved ones huge condolences.

I met Teresa through Family Works when I was looking at the Big Buddy Programme and although I did not have a long relationship with her, the time I did have left a huge impression on me. She was such a bubbly, bright, wonderful lady and I can only imagine how much you all will the loss of losing her way too soon.
Please accept my deepest condolences and I will think of her often.
