I was so saddened to hear of your mom’s illness and her passing. I shared a cup of tea in her kitchen last year before moving to Florida, and as always she proudly filled me in on the whereabouts of her brood and her grandchildren. Always so nice to catch up on news from the old hood. Clapp road was a magical place to be growing up, the neighbors were great and playmates were endless. I am forever thankful for your parents kindness, as well as your grandparents. So many memories. May Dolores Rest In Peace and I hope she is dancing in the sky, happy to be reunited with the love of her life!
God Bless you all

Hi there Leary family. So very sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. Growing up in that neighborhood was the best childhood ever. Your entire family was part of our “ gang”. Jackie and Karen were part of my every day life. Susan and Kathy always tried to be included. ( lol). Lil Brendan and Mikey were our lil companion. Your mom and dad were always so proud of you all. Love my childhood. Thank you for making memories with me. Big hug to all.
