I to am a first cousin to Leatrice. We lived on Willowood Street in Dorchester. We would always see Sondra and Leatrice going together. I remember the first time we went to visit them on Lyman street. We have several memories from the past years.
Rest in peace, cousin. Marilyn (Adelson) Stephen Hoffman

Leatrice was my first cousin. We all lived in Dorchester, within walking distance of each other. My Mother always told me that Leatrice and her sister Sondra were like daughters to her. My Father, was also very close with them and loved them as much as my Mother did. I miss those days back in Dorchester.

My Mother passed in 2010 and I remember that when everyone left the burial site, Leatrice stood over my Mother's grave and with tears in her eyes stated "I love you Aunty Estelle". I will never forget that as long as I live

All My Love,
