    My condolences to both of you. I had the pleasure of knowing Your Mom and Dad, growing up in Riverside.

They are all now up in heaven in their own “Forever Young” club.

  9. Ann was my dearest and best friend! We worked many years together and on our downtime we would travel to Cape Cod. We would also frequent our favorite restaurants to have lunch and celebrate our birthdays. My condolences to Stephen, Paula, Stephanie, their spouses, her grandchildren Katie and Jimmie.

  10. Aunt Annie was a beautiful woman, and we loved her very much. She will be deeply missed. We’re sending our love, thoughts, and prayers to her son, daughters, (their husbands) and grandchildren.

  11. Stephen, Paula and Stephanie:

    Please know that your Mom is holding your Dad’s hands in heaven. I have so many happy, joyful and loving memories with your Mom. My own mother’s educational path to Providence College required childcare assistance and it would not have been possible without your mom’s selfless gift of her time as well as sharing her nurturing and caring way with Maureen and I. How lucky we all are to have had the gift of your mom on this Earth. Peace and prayers in the weeks ahead.
