  1. candleDear Bill, Gina, Laura and family,

    I first met beautiful Terry many years ago through our dear, mutual friend Barbara Aquila Nissenbaum.
    At first meeting, one was struck by her physical beauty, but it was her incredibly warm, engaging and kind manner that truly bespoke her inner light.
    Please know that she is in God’s loving hands, watching down on you all, and loving you still.

    So truly sorry for your loss.

    Laura and Paul Stegmann

    My sincere condolences on the untimely passing of Teresa. I pray that you find the strength and peace at this time of loss.

    I was blessed to have met and be friends with the lovely Teresa Towart. A happy and loving Wife, Mother and Grandmother.
    She is my first friend at our new home in Sabbia Beach. A dear person and a joy to spend time, chat and laugh with. Seeing her smiling face around the building, pool or beach was always inviting and warm. I so enjoyed her as my friend. Although I will miss Teresa, I surely will never forget her. May she rest in peace.

  8. My deepest condolences to you Bill and your family. Although we weren’t true cousins, Teresa always made me feel a part of the Marino family. I know how much you will all miss her.
