    Dearest Randy, Blackie, Tami, Duke, and the entire Mashaw/LaRose Family,
    I am so very sorry for your loss. I can’t even begin to imagine how terribly your hearts are hurting. Teri was truly one in a million. Her beautiful spirit, love, compassion, and incredible sense of humor, were just a few of the things that touched everyone that she met. I was fortunate enough to have her as my dear friend, and I can’t imagine what my life would have been like without her in it. Like so many others, I am heartbroken. Teri will forever be with me in my heart. I know that she will always be with you all; as your special angel. She cherished all of you, and was so proud to have you as her family. My prayers and love are with you all.
