Not sure what to say?

Dear Doug,

I truly enjoyed the long chat I had with your and your lovely Mimi at the WS Rowing Club event. She was charming and perfectly dressed. A big hug to you and my deepest sympathy for your loss.

Warmest regards,
Sharon Linstedt

we grew up next to the Hassets on woodward. I recall Mimi belting out tunes at the top of her lungs in the mid 1950's - perhaps training for a role. It was so loud her brother Tom and the rest of us would pause our play to admire her free spirit. Our best to a great family!

Doug and family: Please accept my sincerest condolences on Mimi's passing. I am very sorry.

Dear classmate from Holy Angels Academy. I have fond memories of your sunny disposition and infectious laughter. Was so very sorry to hear the sad news. May you rest in peace Mary Joan. Love, Diana Gennuso Notaro

Doug, Chris, Molly & Albert: I was very saddened to hear of Mimi's passing. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

This obituary captures the spirit of my beloved cousin Mimi.Two footnotes to her staging Moliere: In Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme,she directed her father, a great actor and father of three great actors,then in his seventies; and she drew some extraordinarily beautiful posters to advertise the production. She was a unique breath of energy and joy, and the keeper of rich family memories. We'll always remember her.

We are so saddened by Mimi's passing. She was such a delight to be around--always happy and complimentary to everyone. We considered her a very dear friend and neighbor. We will miss
her beautiful smile so very much.
Our deepest sympathy goes out to all of you. God bless!
