Thanks Again!!

Saturday, October 27, 2012

Again I would like to say "Thank You" to all of you for your continued prayers and most inspiring posts.
Teresa loved being on Spark People. There were many times when I came home from work at 2 o'clock in the morning to find her "sparking" while she waited for me to get home.
A while back when she wasn't feeling too good, she told me that if anything ever happened to her, that she wanted me to post on here what had happened, and leave it up for a week or so, then delete her page completely. That is one request that I can't fulfill as long as you all continue to post comments. Spark People has become a place where I can still be close to Teresa, and experience the Love that she must have felt for all of her Spark Friends. It has become a habit for me to log on to her Spark Page and read your posts. They are so inspiring and touch my heart in so many ways.
Thank You All,

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss! I saw that your wife was a leader of one of my teams, and was checking out her page.

    I hope that your family is doing alright. Take care, Marcus! emoticon

    Teresa made such a huge impact on lots of people here on Sparks, including me. She encouraged me so much when I started "streaking" to be on track and lose weight. She is missed!

    God bless you and your whole family.

    Thank you so much. She was deeply loved and is deeply missed as you can see by all the comments. Not often does someone come along that brings such a bright spot to so many people. But she certainly did.

    Marcus, I continue to think of Teresa on a regular basis. I miss her so much. I will continue to keep you and your family in my prayers. I know this will be a hard holiday for you. My mom passed away in July and it is so hard to be doing this holiday without her. God bless you and I thank you for keeping this page open.

    I miss Teresa so much with her inspiring words, support and poems. She was a great inspiration to me and I wouldn't be where I am today without her. She made me laugh when I was feeling down and cheer me up. I felt like she was my extended family and when you posted the song, I have listened to it several times with tears because Teresa was the Angel God sent to us. I am praying for your marcus and your family. I know how much you miss Teresa. She will always be in my heart. God bless you for sharing this blog with us. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Dearest Marcus, I want you to know you and your family are in my prayers as always, I was away for a month and wondered if I would see Teresa's page when I returned, I was delighted to find Teresa's page still here. Thank you Marcus for leaving Teresa's page on here. This is so appreciated by me and so many others who have been touched by Teresa. Your wife was such an inspiration and a blessing, I am so thankful that Teresa was my valued friend here on SP, she was a rich blessing with her encouraging notes and cheering me on my journey, and a few weeks before she passed in to the presence of her Lord and Savior, she was a great help as she joined me as co-leader on Shining for Jesus Team. I will always remember Teresa for her inspiring posts and her valued friendship. God's Blessings Marcus, my prayers go with you always... emoticon Psalm 116:15 emoticon emoticon

    It is so wonderful to hear from you Marcus! I loved Teresa so much! I never knew people could really "know" one another over the internet, tho someone as sweet and pure as she was...their love shines through no matter what! I pray you are finding comfort and growing stronger with each passing day! I am sure she would be happy you are communicating with her SPARKPALS!!!!

    Marcus when i read your post with the sad news I was praying you would come here later. To learn what we learned how special and unique Teresa was. She was constently here giving us advice and love and being a angel on earth .This is truly a specail place where there is more love and understanding and I think she knew that and was drawn to help others.I pray that her ability to help others will now help you and your children as you visit her page here. But know this She will never be forgoten and will always live on in our hearts. My God bless you and your family and His new special angel on earth emoticon

    I didn't know Teresa for too long but she still made an impact on me by her genuine caring and love she emitted in her posts. I miss her inspirational thoughts and encouragements. God has certainly given her a special place in heaven and needed her there.

    God bless you and your family.
