She was our 16th grandchild and 7th granddaughter.
She's a very important part of this large family
And an even more important part of this smaller family.
Here is Tessa 'through the years'.
But these pictures only tell you how she looks and how she's changed 'through the years'. What they don't show is what a fun-loving,
and sweet, cheerful girl she is.
A couple of weeks ago we celebrated Tessa's birthday here in Indiana with her best friend/cousin, Mary.
I still wish we could be there with her on her special day but since we can't, we're wishing her a happy, wonderful birthday and a year filled with friends, organizing (which she excels at), and dance!
Happy Birthday, Tessa!
