It is with great sadness I have heard this news about you resigning Tess but understand there comes a time in our life's when we have to sometimes move on. Yourself and Albert were The cafe and although Devin is doing a great job you and Albert will never be forgotten here. Like many others Tess I wont say Goodbye but till later our dear friend come and see us here soon Love Brian.}

I WAS SADDENED WHEN I RECEIVED THE NEWS ABOUT TESS AND HER RESIGNATION. SOMEHOW I FELT THIS DAY WOULD COME. BUT I WANT HER TO KNOW THAT EVERYTHING SHE DID TO HELP ME POST FOR FRANK AND ALL THE TELEPHONE CALLS EACH NIGHT WHEN FRANK WAS IN THE HOSPITAL AND GIVING UPDATES TO FRANK'S FELLOW STARLITERS FOR ME I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER AND APPRECIATE. I THANK HER FOR WHEN I BEGAN CARRYING ON FRANK'S LEGACY OF WRITING THAT SHE MADE ME ONE OF THE POTM. THIS HONOR I WILL ALWAYS CHERISH. I CAN'T BEGIN TO HOLD A CANDLE TO SO MANY BEAUTIFUL POETS/POETESS HERE AT STARLITE. GOOD LUCK AND MUCH HAPPINESS TESS AND ENJOY THAT NEW GRANDBABY. THEY DO NOT STAY BABIES LONG ENOUGH. I WILL MISS YOU AND I PRAY WE CAN STAY IN TOUCH. I'LL MISS OUR DISCUSSIONS ABOUT WOMEN IN THE MILITARY, WOMEN IN THE PROFESSIONAL FIELD AND POLITICS. YOU WERE AN INSPIRATION TO BOTH FRANK AND ME. BIG HUGS AND MUCH LOVE ... ALICEANN

Awww, Tess... You must leave us? Yes, it is me - Curt (Hot Stud) hehe! (been a long time, I know) To all of those who don't me, I've been around a long time as in came here in 2000, but just not been around LATELY!
Tess, just want to know that nobody can ever take your place. You've done a great job and you will be in my thoughts and prayers.
DEVIN, I think we should keep Tess' sections (or at least one; like "In the mood for writing") to stay up in HER HONOR!
Whatcha think, Starlite?
Take Care and God Bless,

Dear Sweet Tess,
Ths is so unlike you. You have always faced us head on. No matter what you had to say. You told us face to face about your father, About Albert, About different things on Starlite whether they were things you knew would hurt us or make us happy. Even when you knew we would not agree with you. You still came face to face. Where are you now when we are telling you we love you?? We won't make you feel guilty because everyone of us know that you need time now. With that beautiful Grand Baby.
I just pray that all is well with you. When people do not act as they usually do, It kinda worries me. Be happy Dear little friend. You deserve it. --- Mary

Listen to the Exhortation of the Dawn!
Look to this Day!
For it is Life, the very Life of Life.
In its brief course lie all the
Verities and Realities of your Existence.
The Bliss of Growth,
The Glory of Action,
The Splendor of Beauty;
For Yesterday is but a Dream,
And To-morrow is only a Vision;
But To-day well lived makes
Every Yesterday a Dream of Happiness,
And every Tomorrow a Vision of Hope.
Look well therefore to this Day!
Such is the Salutation of the Dawn!

Tess, Sweetie, I am surely gonna miss you here at Starlite. We have been friends for such a long time. I know Starlite is just not the same for you without your Dad and without Albert. I understand and I wish you well. Please keep in touch. You know my e-mail and please send me your address again. The last thing I sent to you came back. Love and hugs, my friend.
Peace and Love,

This is so hard to believe! I mean REALLY HARD. Our Tess has alwyas been such an intricate part of the Starlite Cafe. Literally I am in shock over this news. I know that we haven't seen her much lately but beings that she is now a grandma I fully understand that a lot of her free time (and how little she has) is with the new grandbaby.It saddens me to see Tess Place, Masterpiece Theater, and In The Mood removed. Even if of her own accord. And I cannot help but feel there is a whole lot more here than what meets the eye. THERE I WAS BRAVE ENOUGH TO SAY IT! Tess we shall miss you immensely dear. Some may say change is good but without you it just ain't gonna be the same. Sending you off with love and hugs and PEEPS enough to last FOREVER! ~Jacie~

Just a few moments ago, I received a letter from Tess informing us of her resignation from The Starlite Cafe Management Team. Tess has been a major part of Starlite for a very long time. We regret her decision to leave, but wish her well in her future endeavors. Following her requests, we will be removing Tess' Place, MasterPiece Theater, and In the Mood from The Starlite Cafe.
Please join me thanking Tess for everything she has done and wishing her well.
I don't try anything. I just do it. Do you want to try me?
