Memories Timeline


  1. Theresa and Al were not only my neighbors growing up, but my parents best friends as well. The countless vacations we took together to the GlenFalls house, the Jersey shore and even Disney World in Florida are memories I'll never forget. May God Bless you all during this very difficult time. May Theresa Rest In Peace.

  2. So saddened by this..she was so kind and loving to me every time I came to visit my Jersey family…Prayers of comfort for the family!

  3. Mom I miss you terribly and don’t know how I am going to go through life without you! I’m on day two of minimal sleep and so very sad. I text you yesterday hoping I would hear back but I didn’t! There is a huge hole in my heart and I don’t know what to do about it! Please let me know your ok! I love you mommy ❤️

  4. Until we meet again mom, rest well. Thank you for the childhood memories when I used to ride my bike down the street to see you. You were always kind and ready with a smile. See you in paradise.
