You are now in the bosom of our Heavenly Father. Where there is no sorrow or suffering. The most beautiful soul and kindest person My memories of you will forever give me joy. I will see you soon at the pearly gates!!
Dear Robert, Debbie, Kevin & Stephen:
Sending my deepest sympathy to all of you. I know it’s hard to lose not one parent but two parents in the same year. She was broken hearted without the love of her life. She always said she didn’t know what she would do without him. Uncle Sil greeted her with open arms. Aunt Theresa was a great cook, quietly funny, and genuinely a good hearted person. She had a motherly love of people from very young. I loved the old stories the family would tell of how my dad would braid her & Aunt Louise’s hair together while they were sleeping so they couldn’t get out of bed. I spent many weekends as a kid over her house never leaving her side. I learned a lot from her. Aunt Theresa was led by her faith then her family. She took care of everyone she knew. Aunt Theresa is now at peace with God, Uncle Sil, Louise & the rest of our family.
Aunt Theresa it was an honor to have been named after you. Thank you for lending your beach house to my dad for us kids to enjoy. I now bring my children to Wildwood every year because of it. Thank you for all the delicious recipes. Watch over our family. You will be truly missed by all that have ever known you.
