Teresa and I went to grade school together and all the way through graduation. We both played basketball and track at Lamar High School. I have so many fond memories of our friendship. We recently reconnected in 2015, and I'm so grateful for the time we had together. She will be missed on earth but I will see her again someday. Pam
