April 29th My husband and my granddaughter’s birthday and now the day I lost my beautiful cousin. I was extremely saddened because she meant a lot to me. To her children and grandchildren her sister Maria nieces and nephews I send you and heartfelt condolences. Teresa was truly an amazing person, always had that beautiful smile and wonderful greeting when we visited mom and I. What she did for our family assisting with our immigration to the United States I don’t forget it for a second. I am very grateful. Rest in peace do you cousin.

The memories are what keep us going and sometimes eases the pain. Aunt Theresa always had a hug. Now she can rest in peace with Uncle Chuck. Love You

Mom and Pop M. are together again and watching over their family as they did so well when they were here. There is no closer family than yours! I pray for you all during this time that you will feel connected and loved! There are so many happy, crazy, and fun memories of Her and your Dad that it could bring enough joy to anyone for 10 lifetimes! I was blessed to know you and Chuck and I thank you for all the lessons you taught me! You are loved! Rest in peace, raise hell, and have the time of your afterlife reunited!

So much of my love goes out to the McIlmail family. She will be greatly missed by so many. She is now reunited with your dad which she’s wanted to be since his passing. Know that they are both shining down on you all with love.

My heart aches for you all. I know how close your family is and how hard it is to not all be together. Your mother raised such an incredible family with your dad. Their love is reflected in the generations that will follow. They are together now watching down upon you all. My prayers are with you.
