    My heart goes out to you Theresa and your family.
    I so often remember the good looking couple who attended the same Mass as I did when I was at Immaculate Conception parish. Vinnie always seemed to have a smile on his face. It was, I believe, a testment to you Theresa, who was his loving companion for so many years.
    Peace, Light, Love
