On behalf of Teresa Coppola's staff team at the Arc, we wanted to express our heartfelt love and sympathy to Teresa on the loss of her beloved grandfather, Edward. We are all so proud to have such a kind and compassionate spirit as Teresa here with us at the Arc and as we are so proud of her, we know that her wonderful grandfather must have been deeply proud of her as well.
May Edward's entire family be blessed with beautiful memories and peaceful hearts at this difficult time. Our love to you all.
