We will all miss her dearly and loved her very much. She is in her resting place with the Lord now and her smile lives on. She loved sitting on our front porch and George’s good cooking. She loved the campfires and family gatherings. We love you mom from all the family and many friends. Nancy Costello was very dear to mom. Thanks to the nursing home for her short stay and care by so many great people and some aides she really loved.
