On behalf of the Carusos , we are all so very sorry for the loss your family has suffered. Mrs. Koval was my confirmation sponsor and I still have the necklace she gave me and treasure it. She was such a wonderful gentle lady and I will always remember her taking me and Karen to the movies or out somewhere to have fun. I remember her strong faith and the Infant of Prague at the house on 10th St.
God bless her and your family. Monica
