  1. Dear Claude, Sharon, Denny and Dotty, Please accept my sincere sympathy and condolences on the loss of your dear mother. As I read her obituary, so many wonderful memories came flashing back at me. Your family was one of the first families in the neighborhood to have a TV… I can hear Mrs. Buller (Connie) sending all the neighborhood kids home for supper. I also have fond memories of .Grandpa Joe. as he took his daily walk to the center of town….I believe Connie and your former neighbor, Shirley B. are the last of our parents generation. Your mom lived a good life and may the good times help you through the rough times. With fond memories, Katie (Pope) Fuchs

  2. Dear Claude, Sharon, Denny, and Dotty, I was saddened to learn of your mother’s death, and regret that I did not read of it until after the funeral service. I would have liked to give my condolences in person, and to catch up a little with all of you and meet your children and grandchildren. I have such fond memories of spending so much time at your house during my youth, and the atmosphere was always filled with the welcoming, hearty, and cheery presence of your mother. May all the good memories strengthen each of you in this time of loss. With all best wishes,

  3. I lived next to Connie and the Buller/Mowry family for 24 years and my parents for 59 years…what a wonderful neighborhood family…wonderful memeories of big Willow trees and ice cream trucks and swimming in the Cozzolino pool…playing along the brook and Halloween up and down Pool Rd… Love , Jeff Barske

  4. May the Good Lord bless and keep the soul of my cousin’s mother-in-law, and all of her extended family whom she loved so much. I’m sure my mother, who passed Jan. 28th this year, will also seek her out and introduce herself. All of these connections are what life is.
