    Our families go way back to the Norwood days of the Cincotta and Marcianté families. Who knew we would also have a connection in Sparta. Take solace in your wonderful memories and in the fact that Grandma and Grandpa are together again for all eternity.

    Jill, Jeff, Kevin & families,
    We are so very sorry to hear of the passing of Mildred, we just found out today. We were all very fond of her, I always loved listening to her stories when she would stop by to chat with my mom. Both your parents were great people and will be missed. Always remember:
    Those we love don’t go away,
    They walk beside us every day,
    Unseen, unheard, but always near,
    Still loved, still missed and very dear.

    Our sincere condolences,
    Joann, Nella, and Tina Costanzo
