We Will Miss You, Teresa Scalzo

CAPTION

The memorial service at Christ Church in Old Town Alexandria for Teresa was beautiful.

Last month on May 23rd, we lost one of our dear and sweet sister goddesses, Teresa Scalzo to Cancer. At 47, she had achieved so much and have traveled to so many places as well as living life to the fullest. She was a brilliant, passionate and accomplished prosecutor who was the perfect example of a modern day Goddess. Although powerful and respected in her titan career, Teresa outside of work was feminine, fun-loving, giving and generous. But most importantly, she was beautiful inside out and knew how to balance her inner Yin and Yang. She was proud to be a woman and really embraced her femininity instead of shying away from it like most successful modern day women I know and work with.

I want to thank Teresa for coming into our sanctuary and bringing her beauty, her light, her fearless can-do attitude, and her big ray of sunshine and contagious smile!  Her presence was a gift to us all…she made a positive impression to those she encountered and blessed them with her loving energy and inspiring spirit. We will miss her very much. You can read more about Teresa here.  A memorial fund has also been set up by her family to continue Teresa’s mission to help others. We will be hosting a fundraiser soon for Teresa’s causes. I will keep you posted.

Even when she was in pain, her smile was still bright.
