"Miss Nancy lived a long and blessed life.(Psalms 90:10) God promises a time when "death will be no more," and "those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out."(Revelation 21:4;John 5:28,29) During this time of sorrow, these promises can comfort and give you hope. The hope of seeing your loved one again.(Acts 24:15) My condolences."

My deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Mrs. Frangipane. I was privileged to know her just a bit during her time at Mount Carmel Care Center. She and you are in the prayers of myself and all the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged & Infirm, sponsors of Mount Carmel Care Center. May she rest in peace in the presence of Our Lord.

JoAnne, Louise and family, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of aunt Nancy. She was such a sweet person and always had a smile. I'll never forget the endless teasing about being taller than she was....even while on my knees. Always found comfort in knowing there was still a member of the older generation stop with us. The family is reunited once again. May your many happy memories bring light to the dark days ahead. Bless you for caring for her. Gary Perugini
