Our sincerest condolences on the passing of such a lovely person. Teresa was always so kind and thoughtful towards our family, with her phone calls to my parents to check on them or just to pass on greetings. Whenever we visited Columbus, she welcomed us warmly. May you all find comfort knowing that she is resting in peace.

Teresa, with Dante, was such a joy to visit and sit with, with coffee, a pizzelle or 2, a little Italian and a lot of love, the sun shining on her kind heart, and beautiful roses. Ciao for now, till we meet again, dear one and dear family.
