My deepest condolences to the family. Nonie Chi always treated me so well making me always feel welcome and I was shocked when Mary Tre told me, Nonie Chi was a very vibrant and beautiful woman. Many prayers to the family at this time.

Condolences to the family


My deepest sympathy for the family of Theresa. Although I didn't know her that well...the times we had talked I knew her to be a very giving and caring person. She was always nice to me and made me laugh. Now I wish I would have taken her up on some of her invitations to go swim...or go to a concert with her or just chill with her...Rest in Paradise Theresa.

O Glorious St. Therese, whom Almighty God has raised up to aid and inspire the human family, I implore your Miraculous Intercession. You are so powerful in obtaining every need of body and spirit from the Heart of God. Holy Mother Church proclaims you "Prodigy of Miracles... the greatest saint of Modern Times." Now I fervently beseech you to answer my petition bless Theresa's family friends and to carry out your promises of spending heaven doing good on earth... of letting fall from Heaven a Shower of Roses. Little Flower, give me your childlike faith, to see the Face of God in the people and experiences of my life, and to love God with full confidence. St. Therese, my Carmelite Sister, I will fulfill your plea "Bless Theresa's family and friends" and I will continue to lead others to Jesus through you. Amen.


Miss you Noni Chi. I will always and forever love you.

Sam Begulia

Forever in my heart and soul till i see u again one day mom.. i will remember you with love


My life long friend. A sister to me. The times we shared! The good times and not so good times. You taught me so much. Me, the reserved one and you, the zest for life one. We were quite the force together. You loved my kids as I loved yours. You lived life on your own terms, something I always envied. Along with your big, big heart! I can't take that you're not here. I will never have another friendship like I did with you. My sister from another mother. You grew wreary my Chi. Now you can rest easy girlfriend. I hold you dearly in my heart and one sweet day, we'll be together again. I love you Chi. Always have, always will.


I will always think about you Noni Chi I love you so much
