I have so many wonderful memories of growing up in our neighborhood spending time with the Ward Family. She was a kind and thought person; always greeting other with a warm friendly smile. One of my fondest memories of Theresa growing up was her getting that first car; giving my sister and I a ride home.

For the family be encouraged in knowing that we will one day be reunited with those who have gone on to glory.

Treasure those precious memories of her in your hearts always!
