My dearest cousins Linda (Pete), Elena ( Kevin ), John ( Jane ) and your families,

We are heartbroken when we heard the news of Aunt Teresa’s passing. Everyone is in our thoughts and prayers. May you find comfort in God’s love who has his arms wrapped around you during this difficult time.

Both of our mothers , Mamie and Teresa go back over sixty-seven years. They were newlyweds with Uncle Ralph and Uncle Al. Mamie welcomed and watched over Aunt Teresa when she arrived from Foggia, Italy. They had a special bond and celebrated many family events with each other.

I am blessed that God and my parents chose Aunt Teresa and Uncle Ralph to be my Godparents. Many special memories of growing up and spending time with them and my cousins. Aunt Teresa was a kind, compassionate, and loving person. She was a wonderful cook and baker. How I remember all the different kinds of Italian cookies during the holidays.

Mike and I are always here for everyone. We love you.

My heart goes out to this wonderful family. My mom, Mary Echols, can't wait to see her in Heaven to speak Italian. I was so blessed to spend time with her when I would take mom to visit.
Much love to the family. I love you all.

Our deepest condolences on the loss of your mom. I remember your mom with fondest memories from childhood. The big family gatherings of the Randalls, Capziellos, and Russolillos. The smells of traditional Italian family recipes filled the whole home wherever we went for the occasion. I remember her smile most of all, she always had one. She will be missed by all. Aunt Teresa rest in peace and rest easy in the Hands of Our Lord.

Sorry for this belated response, but I cannot just allow the passing into eternity of this remarkable woman we knew as “Zia Teresa” to not be acknowledged -at least that was how dad always called her even tho they were like brother & sister with Faetare roots. Though I was young, I do remember her kindness and affection for myself & Lina, just as an aunt would!
May you treasure the memories and take confidence & consolation in the hope as Christians we have in the resurrection to come! Much love, Steve Ricci
