Angie I am so sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. Our families have so many wonderful and funny memories together that I will always cherish. We spent so many special times together. Both your parents were a big part of our family from the day my parents were married. My prayers and thoughts are with you and all your family. Love, Antonette (Ieraci) Capello

John and Susan Whalen: It is with great sadness that learned of Anna's passing. She was such a great neighbor and friend for so many years. I will always miss the joy of taking Anna shopping, and to mass. Especially, I will miss the many tours of her garden which included the green beans and flowers. We will always remember you Anna, as a joyful woman of faith.

Anna will be sadly missed by her family and many friends. I've known Anna all of my life. She was a dear friend to both my mother and father. She was always a kind and thoughtful person. May she rest in peace. My prayers are with her family.
