My heart is broken. My world will never feel the same...Lona was my rock, my song, my joy and at times my muse. I am selfish. I want her back. I'll need to take the time to look up the word condolence cause I don't think I got this quite right....I love all you left behind Teters. I love you lots.

Dear Garry,
So sorry to hear of your wife's' passing. God bless you and your family at this time. You are in our prayers.

Bernie and Carol Smith

I both taught and substituted at Carlisle High School for several years. I received many early morning phone calls from Leona and she always sounded so bright and cheerful. She was good at her job and I missed hearing her voice after she retired.
I am so sorry for your loss.
Nicole Corsetti

Garry, I only now just read of Leona's passing. Please know that my prayers are with you and your family. I met Leona when I had a classroom at Wilson Middle School and she was a wonderful person!
