    Hello, Montuoro family, I think the only two of you that I know are Bobby and Vincent and Lisa. I just read in the paper about your mom and also your dad’s passing. I was not aware that your father had passed. What a great family they represented. I always look forward to seeing them on Sunday morning at CJ Cannon’s. I wish I had known that Connie was from Philadelphia. My hometown is not far from there and my dad was born in Philly. They always had a kind word to say. I always thought Connie was such a beautiful lady and what a handsome man your dad was. Just a really special beautiful couple! I really missed them when they stoped coming to the restaurant. But you know Bobby and Lisa and Vincent I always asked about them. They were just special! I will miss them. Love to you all, Lois Cappelen

May God bless my dear cousins with comfort and peace as they go through this difficult time. I can just imagine the beautiful welcome there was for your mother, so many love her.

    Dear cousins
    I have a lifetime of memories visiting all of you at Oklahoma and Florida. Aunt Connie was always welcoming and caring to her visitors. One memory was when she took Carol and me to a dress show and bought me a beautiful dress. She was a loving wife and mother.
