  • Mary was always nice to me growing up across the street in Quincy. She was quiet, helpful, and raised two wonderful children Paul and Kathy. She will be missed!

  • So sorry to hear about the passing of beloved Re, as she was so affectionately called. I always loved spending time with her and spending many holidays at her home.
