Dear Marie, Ellen and John. I was so so sad to read about your mom's passing in the paper. Sharing times, many years ago, with your mom, dad and Uncle Vincent are going thru my head. I have good memories and I know that you must have tons which will be with you forever. I will also never forget Marie's help in holding Kelly down for blood test at Holy Name!! I am sorry that I could not attend the services for your mom. I have been at home with back spasms from a fall. Hopefully next week I will be able to get back to Real Estate and to check the beach house. i would sincerely like to see you all. Maybe we could get together at the beach this Spring. Please call me: 201-390-6093, jeanmckenna1021@gmail.com Sending hugs and condolences from me and my girls. Jean McKenna
