  3. Dayle, my heart hurts for you and your family. My heart hurts for myself, too. I have followed Teresa for years on her blog and looked so forward to her entries 3 times a week. I have loved being invited into your home and gardens even if only as an on-line visitor. I will truly miss that. Teresa was such a lovely lady and was always so up-beat and caring. I thank her and I thank you for sharing her. May she rest in peace and may your heart be comforted!

  7. She was a friend to so many, and I think we all feel this keenly... it is all a testament to her gift of being a light, of her caring, how kind, and generous she was, that so many of us feel this loss, so deeply. I am more sorry than I can say, and I hope you and your family take some comfort in knowing she made so many people happy, and feel special. This blog will always be an inspiration to me, an example of loving kindness, and joyful living.

  14. Dayle, this is sad news indeed. I live in London and loved my weekly rambles through Teresa's garden, Chef Dayle's recipe book and the ever-changing seasonal decor that was such a feature of life in your beautiful farmhouse. I delighted in her growing Jadeite collection and your hand in its development and shared her love of making crochet blankets.
    I enjoyed seeing your family and experiencing your day trips and summer holidays in that most breath-taking of scenery. Teresa's voice and personality came across so clearly in her posts and I shall sorely miss her presence. The window on her full, loving and colourful life has sadly closed and I wish you and the family much strength as you face up to her loss. Thank you for being there for us, Teresa. We were all lucky to have known you.
    Wishing you all the very best, Dayle.

  45. Dayle, I think you already know how heartbroken I am. To know that I won't hear Teresa's voice, giving me advice and encouragement is terrible to me. And yet I know it's nothing compared to how you feel. Having seen the two of you together many times, as well as through reading the blog, I know just how much the two of you loved each other. This is an awful shock for you and the entire family. Please keep in touch. Please keep in contact. It wasn't just Teresa that was Dennis's & my friend. You were too. And Mocha. And Travis and Kristi too. Always remember we're here for you in anyway you need. Always wonderful memories.
    Blessings and hugs,

  49. Dear Dayle,
    My heart goes out to your entire family. I’m not sure even Teresa knew just how many people she touched. I loved coming to her blog and seeing her appreciating all aspects of life. She made me look at my quiet little world differently and with more appreciation. As I write this, my husband is in the kitchen making us breakfast and it makes me think of all the times she referred to you as Chef Dayle, and how much i loved when she would share your wonderful recipes with us. Mac n cheese with peas??? Yes please!!!
    Teresa was a huge source of joy to so many people. What a gift to the universe. I pray for comfort for you all.

  55. Oh Dayle, I'm so very sorry to hear this devastating news. I've just sat down with my coffee, as I always do on a Sunday morning, to catch up with your little part of the world. Teresa gave of her time so freely, allowing us a much appreciated view into your lives. Her talents knew no bounds, with wonderful photographs showing your beautiful home and garden, 'Chef' Dayle's wonderful culinary repertoire, and so much more! It has been a privilege to be allowed to follow your life and your adventures. Teresa was so very loved and appreciated by her blog followers. She will be sorely missed. My wish is that yourself, your wonderful children and grandchildren know how cherished she was by so many people who hadn't physically met her, but loved her because of the person she was and the beauty she sent out into the world through her blog. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. It will be but a moment until you will meet again. May God bless you all until that time x x x With love from Lorraine, South Staffordshire, England, UK x x

  58. Dear Dayle, I am so very sorry for your loss. Teresa was a truly wonderful woman. I loved visiting here and go for a wee wander through your beautiful farm garden, admire Teresa's seasonal decorations, see what delicious meals you cooked for you both, watch your grandchildren grow up. Every time I visited, I left with a smile because Teresa had this wonderfully happy take on life that spread like a wild fire. I also loved how outspoken she was, never shy to share her convictions with her readers. I know this must have been difficult at times but she never wavered. I will really miss her. I am thinking of you, your children Travis, Shawn and Amy, their partners and children. With love, Christina xx

  77. Hello Dayle and family.....I just wanted to send my heartfelt condolences on the sudden loss of Teresa. I can't even imagine how devastating this must be for you all. I was always just a 'lurker' here but Teresa had such a warm and caring presence that radiated off my screen and made it a joy to visit here. She helped me to remember the important things in life - love, family, and a joy of doing the things that light you up. She will be sorely missed, all over the world...and here in my little corner of Canada. Be well and I wish you all strength in this awful time.

  78. Dear Dayle, Mocha and family,
    I am so truly sorry for the loss of Teresa. Although I never had the pleasure of knowing your sweet wife in person she touched my life weekly with her positive thoughts, lovely photo’s, crochet goodness and kindness. She was so generous with her peek into your little spot of happiness on the farm... I will miss you all. I loved all the wonderful food you prepared along with family gatherings and holidays shared. I hope you know how much your sweet lady inspired me to be creative and live in the moment. My thoughts are with you all. I hope you find joy knowing how we all loved Teresa. I will miss her very much.
    Much love,

  79. I was quite shocked when I heard of Teresa passing. She was a wonderful person. Very talented. Shared so much of life where you live and the flowers and your sweet Scottish Terrier. She took very nice photos and I loved when she shared pictures of the falls etc. She will be missed. It seems, in reading other blogs, that she not only was well known, but was very helpful with the start up of their blogs and helped trouble shoot when they had problems. Sending prayers your way.

  91. I have been reading Teresa's blog during the past year of the pandemic, and she brought so much peace and joy to me during these crazy times. It was clear how much she loved her family, her home and sweet little Mocha. Her afghans were beautiful, your yard is amazing, and one could tell how excited she was whenever her grandkids were near her. (I had never heard of jadeite until I read her blog!) Thank you to Teresa and all of you for sharing a warm and wonderful life in Oregon. My heart goes out to you at this time -- though I never met her or messaged her, Teresa was a very special lady.

    I am so sad to hear of Theresa’s passing. My thoughts are with you all and I hope you find comfort in each other at such a difficult time. I was lucky enough to run into Theresa and Dayle at Butchart Gardens a few years ago helped by Theresa’s colourful crocheted shawl! Theresa was as warm and friendly in person as she was on her blog. I will miss her cheerful posts, her collections and her lovely crochet.
    With deepest sympathy,

Although we never met in person, I was always looking forward to her lovely posts, long before I started commenting. They were light, sunny and colorful, and lifted up your mood! We all will miss her! Wishing you strength and comfort in each other!! Lots of love, Janneke, Netherlands,

  110. I heard about Teresa’s passing from a friend in Japan who read about it in another blog she reads. I had hoped to get up and visit now that I’m vaccinated but it wasn’t to be. Big hugs and prayers to you Dayle and everyone in Teresa’s family.

  111. Dearest Dayle and the Kasner Family. It is with a very heavy heart that I opened the blog today and read your post. It must have been a great shock to you and your family. Teresa was a wonderful person who shared her love of life with us all here on the Blog. Words cannot express how much I feel for you all at this time. Be strong and I am sure that you have some wonderful memories of your most amazing life together. There are no words that I can express to ease your sadness at this time. Take comfort in your wonderful family and friends and know that Teresa always spoke of her great love of you and the family. I think that you both shared one of lifes great partnerships and it showed in her words and craft and her generous sprit. With love and strength to you all. Lee, Australia.

  115. Dear Dayle and family, I am so sorry to read of your loss of Teresa.

    I have been a fan for many years over here in Kildare, Ireland.

    Every post was a joy to read and be transported through Teresa's wonderful writing to your part of the world.


    May you have some comfort knowing she was so highly regarded through the crafting world and beyond.
    " Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam. "

    This is an Irish saying we use to sympathise on the death of a loved one. It means May her soul be at the right hand of God.

  123. Beste Familie. Ik wens jullie allen heel veel sterkte toe met het verlies van uw vrouw en jullie moeder. Ik las altijd Teresa's blogs en genoot van haar verhalen, foto's en van haar verzameling. De hond Mocha lijkt sprekend op onze hond Uppie! Het zal een grote lege plaats in jullie leven zijn. Ik wens jullie allen Gods Nabijheid en Ondersteuning toe. Een meelevende groet vanuit Nederland van Martine Zijderveld.
