    Dick and Susan, A long time had passed but I was very fortunate to see your Mom during her recent stay at Briodys. It seemed like yesterday. She was as always, gracious, loving, and a good soul. I was very lucky to have her and your dad on my shoulder during my early years. God bless her, you, and your family. An old friend.

    Dear Dick and Sue,
    Of course we are so sorry about Aunt Betty, I’m so glad we were able to have a couple of nice long talks on the phone in the last couple of months. She said when she heard some news she would still think “I have to call Mary Jane and tell her”. I still do the same thing. Now the four of them can start doing “stuff” together on Mondays. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Rick and I lit a candle for her, and three more for Uncle Danny and Mom and Dad. in this amazing place called “The Grotto” in Portland. They will be missed but had lives well lived.
