Dear Susie, Jack, Katie, Brian, Rita and family,
So sorry to hear about your Mothers passing.
I have a lot of memories of our time together on Newgard Ave... my Mother at your kitchen table drinking cokes and all of us kids either in your sandbox or in your alley shooting hoops...!!!
I remember both your parents with fondness and I am really happy that I got to see your Mom last August at our family event.
(Virtual!) hugs to all of you until we can all be together again!

Our Sympathies to the Conways,
It's only natural for us to remember Noreen with John.
We were upstairs renters at their Estes Avenue flat the first few years of our marriage. Noreen and John were like parents to us as we welcomed our two sons into the world. They were loving souls and we will always remember what we learned from them about marriage and parenting.
They will always be a special memory.
