Hello to all Teresa's friends in blogland. We had a small family funeral for Teresa on 21 May 21, due to covid restrictions. We plan to have a Celebration of Life Memorial at a latter date.
I have been missing her, and want to thank each and every one of you that have responded to my post regarding her passing. It has eased the pain to read how much she meant to us all.
My son Travis and I put together this video showing the many aspects of her life.
Hello Dayle. I watched Teresa's video several days ago and it touched me deeply. I'm really missing her too and can only imagine your heartache. I left you a text on her phone a couple of days ago since I don't have your number.ReplyDelete
Just wanting you to know that Dennis and I are thinking of all of you and praying for you too. Please let me know if there is anything I can do. May God give you comfort and peace as you miss your dear Teresa.
Blessings and love,
Betsy and Dennis
A beautiful send off. Will miss reading her blog.ReplyDelete
Dayle thank you to you and Travis for sharing this much heart felt selection of our dear Teresa ❤❤ You will always all be in my heart as feel I know you and, miss seeing all that you did together in your daily life. Again thankyou for sharing and may your memories help a little bit each day. Wendy Oz blog friend and email pal xoxoxoxoReplyDelete
Such a loving, heartfelt tribute to dear Teresa. My sincere condolences to you and your family. PatriciaReplyDelete
I’m glad the comments have helped. I had a feeling they might be a comfort, when I saw the sheer number and the sentiments expressed by everyone. I have thought about you all over the last weeks.ReplyDelete
Very best wishes you you Dayle and family.
Love the VW camper photos!
Dear Kasner Family, Betsy shared the video with me last week and I was able to watch it with smiles and tears. I especially loved seeing Teresa in her younger, carefree days; her beautiful, loving spirit shining through in each photo. I was really moved when the bagpipe music started with pictures of her beloved boats and sailing, and that amazing song by Josh Groban. You did a great job with the video. It was a beautiful tribute to an amazing, caring, generous woman who clearly loved you all so much and truly cherished her blog friends, too. I hope this has helped you at least a little bit to deal with her loss. If we here in blogland are feeling her absence so acutely, then we can only imagine how you all are coping. May we continue to celebrate her life and may her memories bring you much comfort. Blessings to you all.ReplyDelete
Hello Dayle and family. Thank you for Teresa's memorial video which I viewed a few days ago. Truly wonderful and so emotive.ReplyDelete
Teresa in my thoughts xx Amanda Crafty in the Med
I’ve been thinking so much about you and Teresa’s children and grandchildren....imagining how very difficult it must be without her at your side...and hoping somehow we would hear again from you. And then I saw your beautiful,beautiful video tribute to her,..thank you so much for sharing it with us in blogland who are truly missing her popping in very few dayswith the wonderful pictures and updates on your life,family and beautiful home and farm...her amazing mastery of so many areas of artistic talent...and just her wonderful presence.I hope so much that you will find some comfort from those of us you have never but who in our own share your sorrow. You are very much in my thoughts and prayers. Mary in ColoradoReplyDelete
Dear Dayle and family. I did see the beautiful tribute on YouTube. I can only imagine how hard it is for you all. I miss hearing all the news via Teresa. I still cannot believe she is gone.ReplyDelete
I have a lilac in my front garden, it has never bloomed until last week! It meant a lot when I saw the blooms, almost as though Teresa had made it happen and was close by.
Funerals at this time are difficult. My mum passed away last year. Only 15 allowed - we are quite a large family. We too hope to be able to have a special memorial service one day :-(
Sending you all much love. ❤xxx Anne ( copperbeechcrafts )

Dayle, thank you for sharing this video, and pictures of Teresa. It means a lot to me that you thought of us all. I'm continuing to pray for you, and your loved ones. Teresa felt like a dear friend, even if we never met anywhere but in blogland.ReplyDelete
Thank you for sharing this lovely memorial video, such wonderful photos and many beautiful memories for you no doubt. I have been missing my lovely friend and thinking about you and your family and how hard it must be for you. A Celebration of Life Memorial is a lovely idea, I hope you are able to do that.

I don't think I ever commented on her blog before but I have read it religiously since I had my own blog (that I haven't kept up in years). I'm so sorry for your family's loss. I know the hole in your hearts is huge. She was a very bright spot in a world of dark.ReplyDelete

I am so sorry to read this! I have enjoyed Teresa's blog for ages, but have been away caring for my mother who is very ill and have not kept up since February or so. What a terrible loss. My very deepest sympathy -- the world will miss her voice and wonderful attitude.ReplyDelete

So very sorry to hear of Teresa's passing, it came as a shock and great sadness. I hope you and your family take comfort knowing how very loved Teresa was and how appreciated and admired she was to all of us out in blogland. She was a soft place to land, a bright cheerful spot on any day. I have read and reread her blog for years whenever I needed or need a heart felt message. I don't think I could ever forget her. Much love and hugs to you and family wonderful family.ReplyDelete
I think of you and your family every day. It must be so difficult to see your loved one healthy and in a matter of days deteriorate so rapidly that life is in the balance. I know from the comments you know how loved Teresa was and I hope you find great comfort in that. My thoughts and prayers are for all of you at such a difficult timelReplyDelete
