  • Alan,
    I was so very sorry when I got to work today and found that Maureen had passed last night. She will be sorely missed. We, at Bridges will also miss your daily visits. You certainly did all you could and so much more. We would kid among ourselves that everyone should have a husband like you.! I hope that her passing was peaceful and that you will find solace in your memories. We are all wishing you peace.

    Be well,

  • Alan, Alicia and Kristen — I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Maureen at BCBSMA for several years and she was an incredibly kind and supportive leader. After we both left the organization, I continued to think of her and hope she was doing well. I know she was an incredibly strong, loving mother who cherished her family. My thoughts are with you all during this sad time.


  • Alan, it was with a heavy heart when you shared the news of Maureen’s passing. But at the same time a feeling of peace pervaded. Peace for Maureen, Peace for you. It has been a tough journey that you have traversed with dignity and loving devotion. It is fitting that the Lord decided that on his birthday, when he brings Peace to so many,that he granted this gift to Maureen and to you. Take solace in this my friend that Maureen’s spirit is now free to be who she was always meant to be.

  • Alicia, Kristen, Alan and Tommy
    Your mother was my best friend for many years. We were inseparable. We were in each other’s weddings and then somehow we grew apart. My one regret is never reaching out to reconnect.
    She was such a wonderful person.
    Please know I will be thinking of you all. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
    I have many wonderful memories that I would love to share with you . Please reach out by email if you wish.

  • Dear Alan,

    I am so very sorry for your loss. My sympathy to you, your family, and friends.
