I am very saddened by the passing of Mrs. Cozzi. Mr. & Mrs. Cozzi were our neighbors on Elm Street in Watertown in the 1970s, from when I was 4 years old. There were not a lot of kids on the street at the time, but Mrs. Cozzi was always ready to play with me. She and Mr. Cozzi were very good to my mother and me, and I have never forgotten them. I have been living overseas for about 20 years, but I am so happy that I was able to visit them both in their home in 2014 after too many years. Our thoughts and prayers are with her and her family.

I have my Copenhagen yearbook out and see all the pictures of times we shared. We not only shared class time but 4-H, Mixed Chorus, Girls Chorus, Press Club, and a great Senior trip of a week in New York.
My prayers are with her family;

Carol and I were classmates while she attended Lowville Academy. I do not recall when she moved to Copenhagen, but I do have a class picture taken in second grade (1941) that she is in. I counted her as one of my best friends.

My best to Carol's surviving siblings. I know you have nothing but great memories of her.

When I heard of Aunt Carol's passing, I instantly recalled my childhood and all of the wonderful times I was able to share with her and Uncle Dick. Aunt Carol was so kind to me and my brother; always sending cards, cookies, and presents. We visited with them whenever we were next door at our Grandparent's house and enjoyed every minute of it. She loved us so much and we loved her right back, same for Uncle Dick. I feel so blessed to be able to have such great memories of our time together. She will be missed terribly. My thoughts and prayers are with Uncle Dick and the rest of the family.

With love, Jake

We were very sorry to hear about Carol being called home. She and Dick were great neighbors for about 30 years. Carol was especially helpful when Janet died. She was always here taking care of Bill. She even ironed his dress shirts for him!! We also want to mention how they loved our grandsons. There were always gifts from Aunt Carol & Uncle Dick for birthdays & Christmas. We have missed them since selling their house, but managed to stay in touch until they went to nursing homes. Great Neighbors!!
