Dear Augie,
I have known Mrs. Cocozza since I have been a little girl and I am deeply saddened by your loss. Mrs. Cocozza was a lovely lady who always made time for others. I always enjoyed the talks I shared with your Mom, the quick visits to see how she was doing...I will miss her smiling face and her warm heart. Heaven just received a very beautiful angel. All my love Augie. Laura Magliulo
