Phil,Steve,Peter,Frank, and family,

So sorry to hear about your Mom's passing. She was a great lady and I always will remember the times spent at your house on Coolidge Rd and all the times she drove us to sports games or to Wachusett to play golf as kids. I will always remember when she drove me home to my house from Newton Square after my Mom passed so suddenly when I was still at St John's and she was so comforting. I am glad you had her in your lives for such a long time and she will be missed greatly as the strong matriarch in the Lahey family. She will be in my prayers.

Always enjoyed speaking to your Mom going to and from Blessed Sacrament School, in the day, and it continued on bringing up my 3 children in the neighborhood.

Saddened to hear of Mrs. Lahey's passing. I have many fond memories of wonderful and fortifying lunches she served when I tagged along with Peter to 99 Coolidge Road during the noontime break from Blessed Sacrament grammar school. She was always a welcoming and reassuring presence in the Coolidge-Coombs Road neighborhood. My sincere condolences to the Lahey family. She will be fondly remembered. --Johnnie Bergin

Saddened to hear of Mrs. Lahey's passing. She was such an important part of our growing up in the Coolidge-Coombs Road neighborhood. I have many fond memories from the Blessed Sacrament grammar school days of wonderful and fortifying lunches she served when I would tag along with Peter to 99 Coolidge during our mid-day break. Mrs. Lahey was always a welcoming and reassuring presence in the neighborhood. My sincere condolences to the Lahey family, our good neighbors down the street. --Johnnie Bergin

An era of family life on Coolidge Road is coming to an end. But there are so many happy memories. My father always spoke so well of Dr. Lahey. To the members of the Lahey Family, I express my sincere condolences.
