I didn't know Therese well, but I have the distinct privilege of being friends with her son, Nick. Mama G, as she was known to our Loyola family, was a monumental figure in our group. Her love and commitment transcended family lines as she made us all feel right at home when she was around. Nick never returned back to Loyola without a meal or plate of goodies in tow. Her amazing and accomplished children are a true testament to a mother's love. Mama G will be missed, but never forgotten.

To the Giancarlo and DeLorenzo families,
I was so saddened to read about the loss of Therese. We went to Sorrows together and would run into each other which was always a treat to see her.She had such beautiful eyes and a wonderful laugh.
I will keep you all on my prayers.

I am so sorry to hear that Therese has left this world. So many happy memories of being in class with her, eating lunch together, and playing softball. She was so smart. I admired her work ethic and ambition. I bet she was an amazing nurse. To her family, please accept my sincere condolences. So very sad.
