It is with great sadness that I read that Mrs. Hoy passed. She was a wonderful lady. I always enjoyed seeing her in my store. I can remember her from grade school in the cafeteria when she would tell me to make sure I eat all my vegetables. I will always remember her and know she has found her place with the Lord.

My heart goes out to both Danny and Tom and their families. Aunt Anna, as I called her, was the last of the Bartholomew girls, my mom was Nellie.
The memories that I have of my mom and her siblings at my grandparents home on Seneca Lake will forever be in my heart. As children we all played at the house on Seneca Lake while our grandparents and parents talked, laughed and by the days end, we sat down for the wonderful meal grandma prepared. Those memories will forever be etched in my mind and in my heart. Aunt Anna was a wonderful mother and a wonderful aunt to me. My deepest sympathies --
Your cousin, Jerry Capozzi
