    Teja was such a lovely soul. She could make everyone in a room feel better by just entering it. No matter what happened, I knew I could turn to Teja for anything. Advice, compassion, a shoulder to cry on. She was always there. My love goes out to her family and all other friends. She was a wonderful person to be around. Always.

    Teja never failed to bring a smile and a positive attitude. Whenever i would have any sort of issues and would always have a smile and her presence never when unnoticed. Teja was a great friend for the time i knew them. Rest in piece, Teja. See you in the other side.
