I met Teresa (Teri) in 1967 through her brothers Bill Jr. and Bob playing junior league baseball. We never dated but stared at each other a lot! We moved away to So Cal that same summer they moved to Van Nuys. We got together a couple times after. I last saw Teri the summer of 1971 i think she was in nursing training? well when we saw each other our big time hug re ignited our friendship. Such a wonderful compassionate woman. Sad to say during this epidemic that i had time on my hands and looked her up and found that she had passed. To all her family , my sincere condolences. What a huge loss for you and all of us that had the honor of knowing her.

I know that it's important to love our neighbors.
Jesus tells us to love our neighbors..like ourselves.
So it's important to get right with the Lord.
I'm Lucky to have lewis and Steve as my neighbors

My name is Joe Follett son of Bernie Kelley Follett, Bills sister. My brothers and sister are; Charles (70), Tom (67ish) me (62), Mary Jane (60) and Ed (59) we are the Iowa cousins of Bill, Bob, Theresa and Kathy.
I can speak for Mary Jane and Ed that we thought the Kelleys kids were the coolest! They were our cool west coast cousins. We would associate the Kelley cousins when we would hear the west coast music of the 60’s and 70’s, or when we heard of news coming out of California we would wonder if they knew all about it. And they were cool, I should say are cool. We sure loved their patients!
Bill and Theresa were older than I was, they hung out with Bill Wimmer, Gary Wimmer (Uncle Bill’s sister Margaret and Chuck Wimmer’s kids), Charlie and Tom so I didn’t know them as well as I knew Bob and Theresa. I say “know them”, we would only get together once a year, but our patients kept us informed of how well everyone was doing so it felt like we knew each other.
Kathy and I were sad to hear that Theresa was failing and sad to hear she died. We want to extend our sympathies to the west coast families, and know the Iowa families are thinking of you.
Joe and Kathy Follett
