Mr and Mrs Brown,
I am so sorry to hear about Teresa passing away. I was a classmate of Terri’s at Akron Elementary and Ephrata HS, and although I didn’t know her as an adult I do remember her kind and friendly manner when we were kids. I remember that she used to work on skits or musical numbers on her violin at recess so she could present them to to the class after recess was over. I was “recruited” by Terri to participate in some of those productions
( I had a tendency to be inside for recess for “other” reasons!)
I remember your daughter as a lovely girl who was kind and accepting to all kids.
I wish you peace.
Mark Samara EHS ’81(formerly of Akron)
I will miss your quick wit, humor & tenacious professoinalism. Your “snarky” made me smile as we got through so many stressful working days. You will always be my “Terri” from Community Hospital. Rest well my dedicated Beatles & Pink Floyd fan. Say hello to John & George for me as you run through the strawberry fields. Catch some stars “diamonds” in the sky for me for someday we will meet again & then we will brighten the dark side of the moon. Teresa “TJ” Frey
I will miss you Teresa. Bless you.
