I will cherish sharing a birthday with my dear friend. I will have such fun memories of Tessa and I heading out for Mexican food for our June 29th birth date. Tessa would demand we finish with fried ice cream because you " always should make room for dessert." Last year after ice cream we raided The Queens Cups for gourmet cupcakes! From time to time, I'd be up at camp and in need of getting my nails done so I'd ask Tessa to come join me. I'll never forget the first time we went together. I booked appointments for us and I was all excited that they had opening on a busy Saturday and as we were driving Tessa asked me exactly where we were off to and I told her the name of the place and she told me to stop the car. She started bursting out laughing at me and said, "let me make a call"..... she called another nail salon and got us in because I guess the one I called was inside Walmart!!!! We laughed so hard over this. I had no idea since I am not from the area. We talked all day about the creepy people we may have seen spying on us getting our feet done. Oh I will remember so many laughs I had with my dear friend. A great loss for all of us. Keeping your family in my thoughts and prayers and please know we are all here for you! with love, Melissa
