    I am still in disbelief that NaTesa is no longer here with us in the physical. I’ve known her since the 3rd grade and am happy that we continued our friendship into our adult lives. I enjoyed watching her blossom into a well rounded young woman, her commitment to her family & nursing career, and her funny stories about her beloved patients. I’m so saddened that we won’t get to see all that she was to become here on earth, however to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord so we can trust that she is in his loving arms. My condolences to all the family and loved ones. We will truly miss you Tesa!

  13. I was blessed to have worked with NaTesa at Aetna and I pray that all of her family and friends will have the peace that comes from Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.
    NaTesa was a delightful young woman, so full of life and joy that those around her could not help but smile in her presence. She will be missed, but memories of her will always make me smile.

  30. To the family and friends of NaTesa, I offer my sincerest condolences and prayers. I met Tesa through my niece, Cherita Streeter, and immediately fell in love with her gentle spirit. She called me “Aunt Obie” and was always smiling whenever I saw her. I was heartbroken to hear the news of her passing. It is in times like this that we have to believe that God knows what He’s doing, even when we don’t like or understand why He permits certain events. Tesa will be missed, and I will continue to pray for all those who lives she touched.
