Madeline ,
So sorry to hear of your loss.As you know I spent many a day socializing with Eugene and his dear parents ,affectionately referred to as Cap and Kinney by me for many years.Gertrude would always make sure that I was invited to share in many of Eugene’s birthday dinners on Scott St.
You have had a very long and dedicated life to one another.I sincerely hope that you have friends and family close by at this time.
Many years have come and gone since my youth in Dartmouth but many of my fondest memories were to be found in the Kearley home everyday.
