I just would like to give my condolences to Noelle and the Petnel/Marchese family. I met Teresa through her goddaughter/niece, Christina, in the late 90s. Although it's been quite a few years since I saw Teresa, I can recall her smile and her love of Bon Jovi. I hope Teresa is rocking out to Bon Jovi in heaven. RIP. God Bless!
