    Sorry for your loss, we had some great times growing up. When we had family gathering. May god bless her & your family.
    Love to all


  7. To the Donna/Tony Antenucci family and all other family members and friends of Terry,

    She truly is in heaven and if you hear thunder that is Terry talking to someone who has done something to not please her – look out Donna!!!
    Anyone who met her would love her energy and spirit. She lived a very full and good life, she is now at peace and briskly walking around heaven.
