Condolences for the family of “GALLUCCI, CHRISTINE GRACE”

Condolence from Dorothy Daniels on December 22nd, 2013 7:29 pm

Donald and Charlotte,
Please accept my sincere condolences on the passing of Christine. She was a very sweet person and we, as retired teachers, will remember her fondly. Christine often called me after she received her invitation to the Naugatuck Retired Teachers meetings to let us know that she could not attend although she would have loved to come! Always a kind word for everyone, Christine will remain in our hearts for a very long time. Please know that she will be remembered at our NRT Memorial Service in September.
