Theresa was a wonderful neighbor to our family and a great friend to our mother when we all left home. She was a very special person, the family is in my thoughts.

Dear Cousins I'm so sorry about Theresa for all of you, and all of us. She was the oldest of the Salerno cousins and we were lucky we had her for as long as we did. My heart is with you all - give each other hugs from Cousin Marie. Holding you close
