Anthony and family, sorry to hear about Lila. I will always remember the services spent in the nursery together with the kids. She always had a smile and laughter. May God be with you, and her memories will be with you forever. She is laughing with the angels now.

Anthony, Zack and Nic: My heart is broken at the lost of your wife and mother. Words can not express the hurt I feel. She was a wonderful woman and she touched so many lives. One can not help when remembering her, a smile comes to their face. She brought joy to others. I pray God’s peace upon you three during this time.

Lila was one of my favorite people at NCS, for the short time I worked there. As the “after-care lady”which my then-2nd grader called herher job was extremely important, and she did it with joy and dedication. My son never wanted to leave aftercare! He is now a sixth grader and was very sad to see the obit today. But we remember her great personality and fun nature. She would bring snacks, games, and even 3 Stooges videos to help the students unwind after a long hard day of learning. And she would actually get right in there and play games. She was a real ambassador for the school, inspiration to the kids and a total gem to know as a person. Even though we didn’t stay in touch after I left the school, I will never forget her. I remember particularly how happy she was to find out that she would be having a granddaughter and I remember I made her a real kitschy feminine fun picture frame that we had a good laugh over! She is definitely one of those people who will make heaven more “heavenly!” In our eyes, of course,her life was too short! A very great lady…

To the family of the late Mrs.Lila Caprio,

From week to week, I come in contact with numerous patients at Sentara‘s Norfolk General and Careplex Hospitals in Norfolk and Hampton. Although each patient is special, there was something extra special about my friendship with Mrs. Caprio. She was a woman that exhibited strength, hope, and love despite the battle that she was fighting. Her spirit was one that was admirable. Her smile and laugh were contagious.

I was extremely saddened to hear of her passing. I remember our last conversation on Monday morning, May 3, 2010, when I was leaving work and heading home. As I exited her room, she flashed that gorgeous smile and wished me a safe drive home.

I am privileged to have had the chance to know and care for Mrs. Caprio on 6RP at SNGH.

May God provide the strength to your family during your time of bereavement.
