To the Valentino’s
We are saddened to hear of Jean’s passing. Our families go back a long way to the days of growing up on Spencer Ave. in Somerville.
Our families shared many adventures and good times with the Valentino children playing together, attending the same schools, and sharing the best parts of our too quickly passing younger years.
Although we have been apart for many years, we treasure the magical memories of our times together, which have remained permanently etched into our hearts and minds.
With respect and sadness, we say goodbye to our old friend Jean and extend our sorrow to her extended family members.

The Drury’s
