Sympathy Messages

From:  Vincent Tersegno
Teresa Tersegno was my Aunt. I was closer to her than to any of my other Aunts or Uncles. She was a role model for patience and compassion. She was the calmest and most composed person I have ever met. After spending an afternoon with her, I always felt happy and grateful to have known such a wonderful human being.
