  2. From our Swiss cousins:
    This is so sad to hear. Teresa and Harry were both so nice and friendly, and Teresa’s smile has definitely left a mark. We had a wonderful time and we are happy we could meet them before they left on their Rhine cruise. Little did we know, that Teresa would soon leave for a greater journey. Please forward our condolences to Harry.
    Lots of love from all of us,
    Philippe & Sandra, Simon & Sara and Families

  3. Dear Harry and family,

    We were so saddened to hear of Teresa’s passing. We met the two of you a few years ago in Murrells Inlet, and then we looked forward to seeing the both of you whenever we were there. As Teresa’s obituary said, she did have an infectious smile and she had the ability to make us laugh. We loved her ‘southern expressions’ too. Sure going to miss her. We treasure the time that we did get to spend with Teresa and are fortunate to have known her.

    Sending lots of love,
    Elaine and Dean Keinert

  5. My dearest Harry,

    Stan and I send our love and deepest condolences to you and the family for your loss. Teresa was such a wonderful person. Having met her on one of your travels and after only spending a week with her, I was able to make a lifelong friend. She was so proud of you and all the kids. What a blessing she was and I will truly miss her. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this very difficult time.

    Rest in love Teresa.

    With much love,
    Isabel and Stan Lam
