My condolences to Tessie's family, especially, my cousin Kathy who I know loves Tessie and her family very much. Although I only knew her through Kathy, Tessie always made me feel welcomed, a part of her family. I will keep her all of her family in my thoughts and prayers (specially you, Kathy).

Bob, you and Tess were great together. Tess was a great co-worker at Krogers. I have known both of you for forty years. She will be sorely missed. So sorry for your loss.
