Tessa is on her way home!!!!

Yesterday, Tessa Anderson, was given her wings. This is heartbreaking for our family, but especially for her 17yr old daughter, Jasmine. Jasmine also lost her father 4 yrs ago. She has much faith in the Lord, but losing both of your parents is just too much. She needs all the support we can give her!!

Tessa was in New Orleans for the week and passed away there unexpectedly. We need help in bringing her back home and for the upcoming expenses. 

In addition to losing both of her parents, Jasmine is a double amputee that requires yearly surgeries and, while she is very independent, she will need help in so many ways. Please send prayers to this beautiful child that God will wrap His arms around her and give her some comfort during this horrible time. 

It is Jasmine's wish that we memoralize her mother's spirit by celebrating her life as she joins her father, Red, in Heaven. Tessa was Jasmine's rock, her sole provider, her MOM. No child should lose a parent. Just as much, no mother should lose a child. Please pray for Tessa's mother, Deborah, as she mourns for the loss of her baby while also mourning for her granddaughter. Please pray for Tessa's brother, James, who was one of her best friends. Please keep Tessa's father, Beau Anderson and all of her extended family in Virginia, in your prayers. 

Anyone can look at Tessa's FB page and see the love that she gave to this world. She kept private to some, loud to others, but would be there for you in a second. She had a smile that lit up a room and a laugh that will always be remembered. Her middle name is Joy, and that is exactly what she was to so many. Let's honor her now, by being there for her in whatever means you can. Either by a donation, sharing this post or sending prayers. 

As soon as more details are available, we will update this post to let you know about the arrangements. Please respect Tessa's family as they take this time to grieve. 

Thank you in advance for any help you are able to provide. Your generosity will not go unnoticed and is greatly appreciated.
