Mrs. Eleanor R. Tacinelli was a kind and tender spirt. Fortune smiled generously upon her as she lived a long and fulfilling life. Her legacy shall sustain and endure, within the essence of her adoring family and close friends. Her faith, fully realized, will reunite her with her husband and move her ever-closer to her loving God. Life and death are the two indelible margins that volubly pronounce the assessed value of our temporal existence. To this end โ€ฆ.. Mrs. Tacinelli has performed exceedingly well. Be at comfort, Dear Lady, and forever ..... rest well.
-Del and Maria Gomes
