Your mother was a beautiful lady and she raised the wonderful family that has touched my life. I will keep you all in my thoughts and my prayers. Love to you all.
Thank you for including me in her memory photos and video. I loved "Aunt Besa" dearly. My love and prayers are with you, Linda
Dear Avery Family,
I came to know your mother twenty -five years ago when I was a volunteer at West Alabama Rehabilitation Center and assisting her in planning the Mall Ball. She reflected those rare attributes of both inner and outer beauty and a self-less spirt of God's love for others.
During a difficult loss, she wrote the most beautiful note of encouragement and concern which I have kept all these many years. She will remain in my heart always as very special friend who cared not only for me but many others throughout the Tuscaloosa community.
May God's peace be with you all.
To Theresa's family:
I regret very much I am unable to be present in person for the celebration of Theresa's life, talent, beauty and faith. We were friends for almost all our lives. I remember her gratefully today, and all of you are in my prayers.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this time of grief and loss. Your mother was always so beautiful inside and out with her sweet smile, voice and sparkling eyes when I would see her on Sundays at First Baptist. God bless you at this time.
I can not remember the time I did not know you and your family. I have had contact with you mother over the years from our youth and found a most loving and beautiful person inwardly and out. Please accept my condolences in this time of personal trial, but remember you will see her and you dad again.
Your Friend in Christ
Terri and Chuck, you are in our thoughts and prayers. We are so sorry for your loss. What a wonderful lady your mother has been for so long and to so many people. All have been enriched by her. Mary Ann and Tommy Smith
Theresa and my mother became friends at Merrill Gardens. We both enjoyed our visits with her and considered it a pleasure in knowing her. Such a sweet and thoughtful person. May your memories of her bring you comfort.

To Handy, Elaine, Terri $ Chuck,
I just want you to know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. It is never easy to lose a loved one, but it is such a blessing to know that Theresa is now in Heaven where there is no more pain and suffering. She was truly an amazing person and I am so grateful she was with us at Hospice of West Alabama during her final days. Just hold on to the thought that you all will see her again and what a blessing it will be.
We are soo sorry to hear about Aunt Theresa!She was such a blessing to our entire family. I know that she was like a sister to Maw Maw/Lena and a surrogate mother to my mother when Maw Maw died. We are praying for all the family. Wish we could be there.

Dear Terri, Handy, Elaine and Ashley,
Seeing a light as bright as SweetMama's is to sometimes think it will never exit its earthly home. Your faith and your memories will sustain you, and God's grace will surround and comfort you. Our humble prayers will be offered for you and your loss.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Theresa was my sister and almost a mother to me as I grew up. I can never say how valuable that she was to my personal and spiritual growth. I loved her dearly and look forward to seeing her and Elton and our family in Heaven.
She was a wonderful sister!
