Teresa, you are in my heart always. You were like a second mother to me and always kind and such a good grandma to my son, Joe. I treasure my memories with you and so many good times. Wish so much I could be there for your service, and feel so sad I can't work it out. Sending you a bouquet of your favorite flower--yellow roses, so you can see and smell the sweet flowers you love on your day of tribute.
