Please accept my condolences on the passing of Aunt Margaret. When we visited Beachmont as kids Margaret always had a smile and would take a moment to ask me how things were going and ask what I was doing, she took a moment and was happy to chat with a nephew even though she was busy caring for a full circle of family members.

Hoping that you will find comfort in warm memories of the full life that your mom lived and all she did for you and with you.

Mr. & Mrs. Paul Clapp

On behalf of the Capozzo family, I offer my deepest condolences to the Clapp family. My fondest memory of Mrs. Clapp is seeing her standing in the front porch doorway and watching her brood as they played around outside (and Cleo barking at every car and person that passed by). She also kept a close eye on me and Kevin! As I walked up Bellingham with my two little sisters in tow, I could hear Mrs. Clapp yell up to Faith, "Faith, here comes Terry with her sisters; take your sisters with you too!" Fond memories, indeed.
My best to you and yours. Terry (Capozzo) Christofferson

I have many fond memories of visiting Brian and Teresa up in Maine. Ma Clapp always had a big smile and lots of patience with us crazy kids. She is loved and will be missed
