Teresa continued to document the following day as she, Louie, and Gabriella headed to the airport to fly to Michigan.

The 22-year-old, who just graduated from Rutgers University in May, posted a photo of Gabriella in the car as she waved goodbye. “[The University of Michigan] just got really lucky,” Gia wrote. “I love you sister.”
