Dear Charley and family,
So sorry to hear of Helenes passing. You were always such a beautiful and happy couple
So many years since we all grew up in St. Pats. Minerva St. and Arlington Ave. seem like yesterday though.
My prayers and love are with you and the family at this time. I lost George in 2019, so I know the pain. Thank God we all had the years we had.
Im sorry I cant pay my respects in person, but I am disabled and live with my daughter now and I am not able to get out.

God Bless you
MaryLou Ripnick❤☦
