  • Dear Peter, Joe O’Brien sent me the news of your mom passing. Boy, what a great life she lived till almost 100. I met your mother a few times inside your house many years ago when I was working at St. Thomas More Church in Braintree. I moved out to Kansas in 2007. I’ve been back a few times to visit . I hope your health is good!!!! I’m older then you at 74, and you probably still remember my birthday September 6, 1944. If you read this send me an email. Peace and Prayers for you and your family with the loss of your mom!!

  • Peter,

    My thoughts and prayers are with you–may you find consolation and peace as you trust that your mom now rests in the loving arms of God.

  • Dear Peter (June 5th),
    I was so sorry to read of your Mom’s passing. I used to see you & your Mom at Roche Brothers. I haven’t gone to Roche very much in the past few years but, recently, went several times and wondered if I’d run into you & your Mom. I always enjoyed talking with her. You always remembered me by my birthday (I hope I got yours right)!

    Your Mom was a wonderful woman and lived a very full life. I remember her from Saint John’s School…she was always active in something. Keep all of your memories of her in your heart…and remember. she and her new neighbor, God, will keep watch over you & your Family. Peace and prayers to you.
