There are tooo many memories of Auntie Theresa. We spent a lot of time at her house. Auntie was so fun and was great with all of us kids ! I lovingly remember all those trips to Ziggyland in Silver Lake with way too many of us in the car without seatbelts 🤣🤣🤣 But we all survived! She always had the latest Archie, Richie Rich and other assorted comic books to keep us busy and my mother's bottomless bag of candy. Also her 1 large pan pancake for breakfasts there. There are so many more that I could write forever! I love you and will miss you!
