Theresa’s smile will always be in our hearts. I wanted to share the picture of y’all as Pirates at Strawberry Park. So creative. I last got to spend a small bit of time together at the Billy Joel concert May 2019 for his 70th birthday. We have Memories of Camping trips at Strawberry Park. The costumes, decorations, and amazing campsites. Seeing y’all at Jimmy Buffett concerts. We were invited as Fred’s guests but you all made us feel like family. Theresa always open arms. Those memories are a big beautiful bouquet that will live forever in our hearts. Rest in Peace Theresa with our Lord and your family. Gods Peace be with y’all. 🙏

I remember Theresa from Fork Lane Elementary School in Hicksville. We met there in 1976. I also remember her and her sister Regina from Holy Family Church and Cornell Park (behind her childhood home). Although I had not seen her in person in 20 years, we spoke sometimes on social media. I was saddened to learn of her sudden and untimely departure from this world. My condolences to her family.
