    Mom, I will always cherish the memories, lessons and laughs that we had. I could not have asked for a more loving mother to raise me. I hope I do you proud. Please give Nancy a big hug and a kiss for me when you meet up with her. And don’t give GOD to much of a hard time…I LOVE YOU ALWAYS AND FOREVER…

    We are sorry to hear of the loss a wonderful neighbor. There are so many good memories…. Sending us a pot of delicious home-made soup during a late winter ice storm. Being so nice to our daughter, Tricia. She loved to spend time at Linda’s house!! In your quiet way you showed us what being a good neighbor is all about. Your family do you proud. I remember Lisa & Nancy going around the neighborhood during the blizzard of ’78, checking to see if anyone needed anything. They then took a sled over to ‘Heartland’ on the VFW Parkway for whatever was needed. Our thoughts are with all the Cornacchini family at this sad time. Love, Neil & Pat Cronin & all of us.

    Normie & Family,
    Please accept my heartfelt condolences on the loss of your Mom. You were a second family to me while we were growing up. Mrs C. was a truly loving and patient Mom no matter how much trouble I got us into, Normie. I think of you often and always smile over the warm memories I have of you, your Mom and Dad, and your family. My thoughts and prayers are always with you.
