I will miss her warm smile and bubbly personality. Always had a way of making me feel extra welcome. I will remember her very fondly, especially the great memory of taking them to see the new Yankee stadium.

Newhouse, Bobbo, Comrade Bill, Suzy Q, and Nancy too !
Sorry for your loss.
It would be hard to tally how many Sperry softball games were influenced because of Ma & Pa House's unconditional support, a least a couple anyway.
I miss ole' Ma &Pa, they were quite the characters.
May your fond and funny memories help you through this trying time.

Dear Davy, Bobby, Nancy, Susan and Billy,

Please accept our heartfelt condolences to all of you at the loss of your beloved Mom.

Its probably silly, but I will always remember one summer morning at least 50 years ago when I came calling to the Morehouse home at the end of Olive Street, overlooking the now mythical Sand Banks.

I knocked on the side door and greeted Mrs. Morehouse by asking, How do you feel? . To this she replied, With my hands!

It was the first time I heard that one and it threw me off for a minute, but also gave me a lesson into Mrs. Morehouses great sense of humor.

Of course there are so many more great memories and stories to tell.

May she now rest in peace in Heaven.
