  1. To the Cappetta,Earth has no sorrow that heaven can not heal.Remembering your family in our prayers.

  2. I am sorry to read of your loss. Please accept these comforting words from the Holy Scriptures: “The resurrection of friends and family is part of the hope that the Bible sets out. Revelation 21:3, 4 gives more details: ‘God himself will be with [mankind]. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.’ This means that any source of sadness in your life will soon be gone forever. What the Bible promises will come true, and you can enjoy its fulfillment. Just knowing that better times are ahead gives relief.’

  3. For all of the Cappetta family, the ones who were almost like my own family in my youth–though my eyes are dripping with tears, most are from all of the wonderful laughing memories Suzie and I talked about again and again over the years. I will be holding close to my heart my own memorial for Suzie here in Virgina at the very time you will be gathered in California. Even though my physical body cannot be there my spirit will be. After the service I will send this memorial that I made to you. MEMORIAL TO SUZIE CAPPETTA TITTLE There is a Universal Intelligent Life Force within everyone and every thing. It resides in each of us as a deep wisdom, an inner knowing. “We will meet today, we will meet again tomorrow, we will met at the Source every moment. We meet each other in all forms of life.” — Thich Nhat Hanh “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.” — Helen Keller “TO LOVE WHAT YOU DO AND FEEL THAT IT MATTERS — HOW COULD ANYTHING BE MORE FUN.” — Katherine Graham “The most wasted of all days is a day without laughter.” — E.E. Cummings “JUST THINKING OF YOU SUZIE, MAKES ME SMILE AND LAUGH. I WILL ALWAYS BE WITH YOU NO MATTER IN WHAT FORM — WE WILL ALWAYS CONTINUE TO HAVE OUR ‘Laughing Phone Calls’ FROM WHEREEVER WE ARE.” Rachel Salvamoser Storer

  4. Michael, Phil, and Robert, my condolences on the passing of your sister, daughter and my childhood friend. We will wonder why we wept when we see where she has stepped…my thoughts, prayers and fond memories of Suzie are with you today.

  5. Thank you to everyone that took the time to enter your thoughts, condolences, prayers and fond memories of Suzie into this guestbook. And to all of you who attended Suzie’s services, our entire family is ever so grateful for the outpouring of love, support and comfort you brought with you. Suzie had that special talent of making lasting friendships. I know many of you will miss her just as much as I will. And there will forever be a void in our lives that Suzie once occupied that no one else could ever fill. Each of us that are left behind, will ever forget what she meant to us. Just knowing that she loved us in return is a comforting thought. Bless you all. (Suzie’s brother Michael)
