On Thursday, December 3 Teresa fell, and she hurt her hip. Teresa understandably wanted to avoid going to the hospital due to COVID-19. But Frank and family knew it was an emergency and it was necessary to have Teresa checked out. Shortly after being examined, doctors confirmed not only had she broken her hip, but also had pneumonia. Doctors seemed hopeful, but Frank and Teresa felt helpless not being able to physically be by each other sides. The only contact they were allowed was via telephone due to this pandemic.
Suddenly & unexpectedly on December 16 around 5:30 PM the Lord called Teresa home. One of the nurse is caring for Teresa at the time was kind enough to FaceTime Frank and her stepdaughter Francesca from her personal cell phone... So they could say their final goodbyes minutes before her passing. Because of this horrible pandemic, Frank was not able to comfort, console or be with his wife during her last moments.
Unfortunately Frank and Teresa‘s family were not financially ready for this tragedy. Teresa was supposed to have more time. She was supposed to have many more years with her husband, family and loved ones.
This is such a difficult time, not only does Frank & family have to mourn the sudden loss of their beloved Teresa, but now have the stress and financial burden of trying to give Teresa a proper funeral that she deserves… During a pandemic no less.
So on behalf of the family, I humbly ask that if you are able to donate, please do so. No amount is too small, every penny counts. I know it’s hard times for a lot of us due to this pandemic, anything is greatly appreciated! We have a small window to reach our goal.
For those of you who are asking Frank what you can do to help him during this disconcerting time, is to DONATE AND SHARE!!!
Let’s all do what we can to help Frank and family so they can use this time to mourn their loved one. I can only hope Teresa’s loved ones try not to focus on the loss of life, but take comfort in knowing she is home with the Lord. She’s no longer in pain and cherish and treasure all of the wonderful memories they have with her.
