Dear Janelle and Family, Mr. Panza and sons,

My heart goes out to you all! Wish I could give you all hugs!! A mom is your first and dearest love and so send them on ahead. My memories of your Mom Nancy are filled with happy thoughts of a generous loving woman who made family first and had a great laugh and sense of humor too. She was so giving and welcoming. Still I recall how her prolific holiday cookie baking was such an extraordinary output for one little lady.
God Be With you and Comfort and Keep you all at this sad time . Mr. Panza, such a. loving and inspiring example of what love is and what marriage means! Love to you old friends!

From Janine and Family and the Pitarresi Family
