I don't think the photo was accepted on this website. I posted it on "I remember New Britain" facebook page. I hope you get to see it.

Dear Debbie and Cindy, Your mom was my mother's dearest friend / Paesano. I knew your mom to be a wonderful loving person. I always loved the way she laughed. I grew up on Allen St. near your grandmother and aunts. We called your grandmother, Josephine "Gumada" As a 5 year old, I thought it was a thrill when I visited your grandmother and she gave me chewing gum. Your mom was often there with her sisters. Everyone in the family called me "Little Lois" as your cousin, Lois Silverio was "Big Lois". Big Lois was older than I was so it made sense to refer to us as Big Lois and Little Lois. My mother was Angie Zappulla Procopion Rogala. We lived on the third floor of 450 Allen St., My grandmother and grandfather lived on the first floor and my aunt, uncle & cousins, "The Davidian Family" lived on the 2nd floor. I often referred to it as growing up in the "Italian (Sicilian) Commune". My mom died in 2014. She always spoke so highly of your mom. My mother is greeting your mom in heaven now. They will be swing dancing to Sinatra with their husbands as soon as she gets there. I think they had their own sorority. Your mom is first row sitting on the right. My mother is standing third one from the right. My thoughts are with you during this difficult time.

Love Holly

My sincere condolences to the family for your loss.
I will truly miss Millie. I couldn’t have asked for a better neighbor/friend over the past 24 years. She often came to her door to ask how I was doing and always asked about my daughters. She occasionally rescued me from a few spiders and I looked forward to her Christmas cookies.
Rest In Peace dear Millie❤️
