  2. Mark Charlie and MF sorry to hear of the passing of your Mom. As was her style she had a good long run.I can still smell the chicken que ing in the backyard.

  3. Dear Mary and Mark and Charlie,
    Our moms went through a lot together and talked about all of it when they shopped at the grocery each week. I will be forever grateful to your mom for how she kept us going. You all had one-of-a-kind great parents and all of us on Garfield were lucky and blessed to have your family as neighbors. We were all blessed to have each other. We had the best of times and the worst of times on Garfield, but we had each other and as Marge Cushing said when Helen Knittle passed, “We had a true extended family but did not realize it until it was gone.”

    With love and fond memories,
    Annette (Stowasser) Mayhew

  4. I’m so very very sorry to hear about your loss she’s in a much better place back with your dad and my mom and dad and all the rest of the family that’s been lucky enough to get there. Love to all the family always in my prayers.
