Cousins Mark, Larry, Janet and Lucy, as I think about what to say other than the obvious, memories come to mind about our childhood. It was always fun coming to your house as your Mom (and Dad) were so loving and funny! I can still hear your Mom laughing. May she rest in peace with the family, Teresa
