  • I was so very sorry to hear that Renaldo had passed away. I send my deepest sympathies to Danny and the Mauritson Family. Your dad was a great guy to be around many, a Saturday we would go bird shooting with Eddie in Plymouth. We all had a good time., he will be missed.

  • As a first cousin once removed to Renaldo, I am saddened to hear of his death. He was one of the few Finnish cousins in America who corresponded with me. His grandparents in Finland were my great grandparents. My mother knew him well. I have fond memories of visits to the Mauritson home in Quincy. His mother Liisi gave the best hugs!
    My thoughts are with his family and I join in your grief.
