    Mrs. C…..
    Someone that I have known since I was nine years old…..I will miss you! Her dry sense of humor and witty comments directed to me made every visit to the house so enjoyable. She always knew what was going on, despite how elusive we thought we were. My condolences to John, Ruthie, Michael, Karen & Grandkids, stopping by the house on holidays will not be the same.
    Mike Zaccone & the entire Zaccone Family
