Mary and family, I am so sadden by the loss of your mother. I will always remember what a presence she had in our neighborhood growing up; how she rode her 3-wheeler to the school and seeing her infectious smiling face in the school cafeteria at Sea Park Elementary and the smell of her wonderful Italian cooking on Claridge Street. Friends and family are all rejoicing in heaven together, our prayers and thoughts are with you now and always. Suzanne Mott Todd

Dear Family, I am so very sorry about the loss of year dear loved one. May the thought at Job 33:25 give you comfort in knowing that Mrs. Box will return to the days of her youth and be able to enjoy life without the infirmities of old age. My sincere condolences to you.

Mary and Family: our sincere condolences to you on this day from the LoCastro Family - we will always cherish the memories of Mrs Box - her absolutely contagious smile and laugh; the unconditional love she had for all, and of course the special friendship we had between our families on the corner of Claridge St and 4th Ave. She was our Mother’s Best Friend - hard to believe our Mom will have passed away 10 years this coming May, but we’ll take comfort in knowing they’ll be laid to rest so closely at FL Memorial and of course laughing together daily at Happy Hour in Heaven, just like they did for decades here on Earth! Love to her and all of you!

All our love and sincere wishes for sweet memories and God's love to carry you through these tough times. The LoCastro.and Parker families
