God Bless you Carol&Charls Love Theresa J & Mom Theresa Eppolito(Maffia), June 4, 2014 Carol, Charles--Your mother was such a loving person and she brightened my family's life and mine at a very difficult time. She was a bright and shining star, and even though I knew her only a short time here on earth, I am so thankful to have known her. Of course, I'm not telling you anything you don't know. I only met you two once in her room at the care center, but you all made a wonderful impression on my family and me. I just loved her and want to embrace you all in your grief. Beverly Groves, October 18, 2009 We are all blessed because of so many wonderful years with Nancy.She was always ready to make everyone smile. I remember one time in particular. One year right before Christmas my father, Roy Klinglesmith had moved into a new home. Nancy thought he should have a Christmas tree and house warming presents. Nancy organized it and made it happen. What a perfect evening we had. Roylene Klinglesmith, September 18, 2009 What a beautiful picture.
