A note about how Teresa still helps & guides us with her strength:

As I am re-reading an old blog I started 3.5 years ago, I have read a few comments that Teresa posted...this is T's comment to a post I made on 2.16.06 about the loss of three people we knew to cancer in one week and all were buried on the same day.

----

From one who is fighting the battle, it is sad to see the death of so many. In some crazy way, it makes me feel like I am not alone in this. So many go before me and after in similar battles. One does not get to choose the cross to bear; but can choose how to carry it. I found strength and courage I did not know I had; but is there another choice --other than to fight the battle and cherish what is here and now?

Teresa...we miss you dearly, but we feel your spirit all around us...and we continue to see the goodness you left for us to find. Thank you.

love Marty

As we come up on this important anniversary, I wanted to share how Teresa still lives for us each day. I've had a struggle with a "friend" for some time now. It's finally working out in a great way. And, who know who's been helping me? Teresa! Some really amazing and wonderful things have happened which has helped me tremendously. Last year, I remember thinking: Teresa knows so much about love and how to find really, good, true love. I know I can learn from her. And, sure enough, as I thought about all the help I've received (i.e., "coincidences"), I thought: OMG, Teresa helped me! :) Isn't that awesome. !!

Hi Friends of Teresa,

I just heard about the Army of Women organization. It is a wonderful organization recruiting women without cancer to participate in research for a cure. The website is www.armyofwomen.org. The goal is to recruit 1 million women as volunteers in research for a cure. All you do is enter your contact information, and they contact you if a research opportunity comes up. Sounds like a great idea to me!

Scott:

My friend Catherine and I (and her baby Luisa) will be doing the walk. I plan to meet you outside the tent around 8 to get the photo of T to pin to my shirt.

Looking forward to celebrating Teresa and helping forward the fight against breast cancer on Saturday!

Dear Everyone Who Loves Teresa:

I was at work, streaming 80's music and Def Leppard's "Pour Some Sugar On Me" came on and I instantly thought of Teresa! Linda Winke might remember this---

A couple of years ago I was in the car with Teresa and Linda (and possibly Joanne and Marcela). We were going on a house tour in Edgewater. The radio was on and some group was in the studio with the DJ's singing one of their songs acapella. Teresa started telling us a story about how she was listening to the station once and Def Leppard was in the studio with the DJ's and they sang, "Pour Some Sugar On Me" acapella. Her whole face lit up--she got very animated and started singing "Pour Some Sugar On Me" in her firm, authoritative voice. "Man, that was a good song!" she said. We all got such a kick out of her A) singing and B) being a Def Leppard fan. Who knew?

Just had to share that--I know we all think about her all the time and sharing this stuff keeps her with us.

Love to all of you,

Melissa Keller

Thank you for sharing that lovely tribute, Scott.

I had a dream the other night about Teresa. A bunch of us from high school were with her, yet we knew she wasn't really "with" us, if that makes sense (dreams are so weird). It was as if she was there in spirit AND body, but all of us were aware that she had passed on. We were having some kind of barbecue, the purpose of which was to celebrate Teresa, and everyone took turns standing up and toasting her. She was the same old Teresa in the dream as she always was...smiling, laughing that great laugh, enjoying everyone around her.

Whatever the dream "meant" or represented, I woke up with a huge sense of gratitude for having known her.

I'm glad you're still using Caring Bridge because it allows all of us to continue the "conversations" about our wonderful T, which helps me continuously reflect on her and the role she played in my life. Thank you for that.

Happy 41st birthday to you in heaven. I hope you are enjoying your "dirt cake". I remember making it for you for so many birthdays. Makes me hungry for an oreo cookie! I am trying my best to smile like you asked but tears come so easily. I love you and miss you beyond belief. I am glad you are happy and pain free at last. Mom

Happy Birthday Teresa! The pictures of the 40th Birthday party just 1 year ago, reminds us of all the fun times we spent together. We like to remember you with smiles as you so aptly suggested in the poem but the pain you suffered certainly brought tears to our eyes. Knowing that you are in a better place makes us once again smile and your beautiful smile shines through whenever we think about you. Scott, your strength and courage amazes us and we are very proud to be your parents.

Love, mom & dad

Scott...1st, thank you for sharing the pre-b'day evening with me to celebrate T's 41st year...a special moment indeed...she was and IS so special to so many.

2nd, I could not help but think of T yesterday/& all week as the last part of the Gospel of John (& Acts) was read at mass...yesterday/Friday excerpts was as follows...
from Acts: One night while Paul was in Corinth, the Lord said to him in a vision, “Do not be afraid."...& from John 16: you will weep and mourn, .... you will grieve, but your grief will become joy.---oh, such a timely scripture for us all to contemplate...we should not be afraid, and we should know that our sorrow will turn to Joy!--may we all remember the good times with T and recall her strength and grace...she is an inspiration to us all....may her memory comfort us.peace and joy to each and every one of you as you remember her today on her 41st birthday,mpmPS: as I've said for 30 months now to Christine--and now to you for the last 2 months...'we love you, we miss you and we're so sorry we've lost you...'
