    It has been such a pleasure to know Teresa during her stay in Lake Wylie and Rock Hill. I think she started a shopping trend at The Southern Living Christmas show with her wheelchair and cheery smile! I wish I had an ounce of the patience she exhibited with her neighbors at Harbor Chase. She loved the Lord and her family and I know my Mom will have a wonderful new friend in Heaven. Terry
