  5. Dear Carlo and Teresa:

    My heartfelt love and support is extended to you upon the loss of your believed matriarch.

    Mama T, as I fondly called her left an indelible mark in our lives and will be lovingly remembered.

    I pray that God strengthen and support you, during this most difficult time.

    To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.

    Mama T has reached the ultimate level. She has transitioned from work to reward.

    Blessings with love in abundance, your sister Ingrid.

  16. Carlo, all my condolences upon learning of the passing of your Mother Teresa. One never quite recovered from such as our mothers are our first in family and first in friends. May all the fine memories you shared with her last a lifetime for you. Most of all, may she rest in peace in God’s good hand.

  17. Cara Teresa solo adesso ho saputo che ci hai lasciato per percorrere un altro cammino che dall’alto certamente sarà sempre vicino a noi.
    Ho di te un ricordo indelebile.
    Il tuo ricordo è indissolubilmente legato a quello di mia madre per la circostanza, fra l’altro, che siete stati colpiti da ICTUS quasi contemporaneamente.
    Purtroppo mia madre non ha superato come invece tu hai fatto i postumi dalla malattia.
    Ti penserò sempre,
    Giovanni Bologna

  18. Carlo i am so very very sorry Teresa was a very special lady we had wonderful times together years back! Sending you love and condolences
