  1. I am so sorry for your loss.when I saw the notification memories of Mrs. Cascio flooded back from the recesses of my memory. As a member of The Ct. Classics Drum and Bugle Corps my contact with her was that of a child’s . She was one of those dedicated and tenacious parents who were always around doing what was necessary to help the whole thing keep going.

    To the family, I hope your memories bind you together and your collective love strengthens you during this time of mourning.

    again, so sorry.
