Barry, Mitzie, Joanne and family: I can't remember your mom ever without a smile. She loved life and her family so much. Though the past years have been difficult for you all, you now have one more Saint in Heaven pulling for you. May the Lord's Advent peace be with you and carry you through this in His loving hand.

Aunt Theresa was one of the warmest and kindest people I knew. Being around her was beautiful and she lived with laughter. I can remember her and my dad talking and laughing on the phone all the time. And her beautiful Irish blue eyes would twinkle with love. God Bless and rest sweetly.
