To the Capriola Boys--Thank you for sharing your mother with us. After our mom died, she stepped in and kept our mom's spirit alive. Aunt Myrtle was such a vivacious woman who lived life to the fullest and had a great sense of humor. She was loved and will be missed!

Old friends and neighbors on Old Lancaster Rd. are now together in a higher and greater place. We have lost Mr. Cap, Tony Cap, Mr. & Mrs. Roselli, and most recently within days of each other, Mary DiValerio and Mrs Cap. A very special generation of whom we will never forget. People who shaped our lives and have left us with many special memories. Mrs. Cap was a part of our family and we will miss her very much.
Nick has lost a great friend. Love Nick, Ron, Linda and Vanessa Boschi
