Will we miss your giggles when you tried new things. Putting your feet into the ocean in California, going to Disnyland, and sleeping on a bunk bed in Banff, Canada. She loved California, her family, and all her nieces and nephews. Peter, Terry, Kathy, Annamaria, we love you all and your families. Uncle Angelo will be happy to see her. Lydia and Aunt Rose
We are all so sorry for the loss of your Mom.
We will always remember Aunt Teresa with those PINCH kisses and that shy laugh of hers whenever we embarrassed her. Being from California, that big Sunday super was always such a special treat and so yummy.
Aunt Tre, we know that Uncle Angelo was up there waiting for you with a nice slice of watermelon...wonderful memories.
You are all in our thoughts and prayers and now we all have one more angel to look after us.
Roberta, Richard, Marc, Marina, and Chris
My sympathies and prayers are with you and your family.
