I worked with your Mom at the County Club Pharmacy throughout high school and into college. She was a wonderful woman and I will always think of her fondly. My heartfelt condolences are with you and your families at this time. Best Regards, Susan Atzbach Rand.

To the family of Louise Esposito
I worked with Louise at the Country Club Pharmacy for
many years. Elaine, Louise and I would have breakfast
together once a month or so, and after the store closed
we did get together as often as we could. She was a very
giving, kind, energetic, loving person. I am sure all the co-workers have pleasant memories of her, always.
Condolences to your entire family.
Dolores Schuster
