  1. Jason loved his mother with everything he had. She was so lucky to have such a loving son. I’m thinking of you and your family.
    Love- Sarah

  2. I worked with Teresa for many years. She would always work with others to fix a problem and make things right. I LOVED her laugh and we did it loudly whenever we talked. Jason, she was so proud of you. You could FEEL on your face the joy radiating from her smile when she spoke of you. I’m very sorry for your family’s loss.

  3. I love the words from a song by Michael W. Smith, “Friends are friends forever if the Lord’s the Lord of them…” Years and miles had separated us from our dear friends, Sam & Teresa Adams, but I’m so thankful that the Lord allowed us to return home in time to reunite. Our conversations almost always found their way to talk about youth camp and the “Hill” at Van Buren. Teresa was a true friend who was filled with His Spirit and lived out the Fruit of His presence for all of us. We Will Miss You!
    Save us a good place around the throne and we will see you soon!
    Love and prayers to her family ~ Gary & Cynthia Smith
