I have many wonderful memories of my cousin Teri. The overnights when we were kids. I always thought she was so beautiful and looked up to her. Teri is so kind hearted and has always been so nice to me. Sorry I cannot be there to pay my respects. My condolences to Aunt Judy, Colleen, Tommy, Michael, Kenny, Bobby. Love Cousin Connie.

Teri was the most selfless person I ever met. She did not give of herself, she gave herself to anyone she had opportunity to help. She was the epitome of love.

I loved her with all my heart and will miss her more than words can tell . Rest in peace Sweet Teri, Gran

My Aunt Terri always made me feel so loved and special every time I saw her. She gave the best hugs and had the sweetest, most beautiful and warm smile. Her beautiful spirit will always live in my heart for the rest of my life. I will miss you so much Aunt Terri. I wish I could give you the biggest hug and tell you how much I love you, but I know you’re here with all of us, watching over us all with both Papa’s, Uncle Paul, Ryan and Marc. Your beautiful and sweet spirit will live with us all forever.
