    Our family is deeply touched by the loss of Cousin Terisa. There are no adequate words to express the sorrow we want to convey. Praying that God’s love and compassion will help you in your grief. He will ease the pain and bring peace as you lean on Him for understanding.

    I was shocked and saddened by the loss of Terisa. I remember her back when she was small. By they time she grew up, I had moved away. She was a very beautiful lady. May your memories and prayers sustain you. I can’t imagine the grief that you are feeling right now. I am so sorry.
