I haven't seen Tressie in a long time but that doesn't mean I haven't thought about her many times. She would always be smiling when I would see her. She will be missed greatly by her family and her friends for her attitude toward life. Love you Tressie!

I was so sadden to hear that Ms. Tressie passed away. She was a wonderful person and I am so glad my sister (Ineca Langer) and I got to have a wonderful visit with her and her sister, Dorothy Odell Wood, a couple of years ago. She was a fine lady, and we be greatly missed.

So sorry to hear of Tressie's passing. Praying God's comfort for all of you. I remember the last time I visited with her was at the English reunion in Letonia just a couple years back. God bless you all. Tressie was one of the people I enjoyed seeing when grandma (Dee English) would take us kids up on the mountain.
