Obituary Image

Veronica Teresa was born in Siquierres, Costa Rica to her late parents Henry Allen and Esmeralda Record de Allen. She passed at the age of 73 in Brockton, Massachusetts.
   She leaves behind her wonderful husband Dr. Enrique Cole Lawrence; two children Carolina Ivette Cole Allen and Hermer Ernesto Cole Allen; four grandchildren Brhyanna, Jheykeell, Jasmine, and Tryshten; and one great grandchild, Elijah; her sisters Lena, Trinidad and Hanna; her late brother Henry Jr., and extended family.
   Teresa loved to sing and dance to the tunes of soca and reggae music. She often traveled back to Costa Rica to spend time with her family and friends. And above all, she loved her vacations, trips to the Cape, long conversations and math tricks with her loving husband of over 50 years, Enrique.
   She was a generous person who got satisfaction from giving and sharing with everyone. She was a fine mom and excellent cook, always making her grandchildren's favorite meals. Teresa had a quirky nickname for everything around her. She was playful, happy and funny, and her joy would spread to everyone around her. We are going to miss Tere very much.
