    For Christopher, Audrey, Eric, and Ana; sending you my sincere sympathies and on the passing of your beloved Mother and Grandmother. She was a dear friend of my mother, Lorraine, and my family as well. I recall her hearty laugh and gift of conversation. As well, her quick wit and quiet kindness. And I do recall her sharing your part of paradise ~ Dingley Island ~ with Mom and another friend. She is with your brother now and those that she has loved, but beautiful memories shall ~ I hope ~ assuage any grief that you may be experiencing. Know that it was a distinct pleasure and honor to call her my friend.

    To the loving family of Nancy Knight; I have known your mom since my kids were in North School many years ago. My mom, Mrs Pauline Breen worked with her for a very long time. I will especially miss my bi-monthly “chats” and family news updates as I cleaned her house! Her hermits were something to remember for sure, as she shared them with so many people. I will deeply miss her and cherish the laughs we shared together over the many years that I worked for her. She spoke highly of you and loved you dearly, her beloved family.
