so sorry to hear of the loss of your Mom. She and Rocco and I were friends. I met up with her a few years ago on the North Adams summer celebration. I recognized her immediately and was pleased to run in to her then.
So sorry.

Dear Wayne & Dennis, So sorry for your loss. Joanne was my earliest playmate on Bracewell Ave. She was a topnotch legal secretary, knew her stuff & could have been a lawyer. I also knew her to be a good Demcrat. She will be missed.
