Dear Kathy and Anne, I am so sorry about the loss of your mom. She was a terrific woman. I believe that because I think I spent more time in your Crestwood home with Lisa than I did in my own home :) . She left an impression on me that to this day, and raising my own kids, I think of Jean.
I am so very sorry for your loss of your mom. She was special. I always think of Lisa too. I miss her.
Love,

Hannah ( Egan) Karass

Kate and Ann,,

Your mother was the kindest and gentlest woman I have ever met with a smile that lit the room. She was also incredibly strong and loved her family fiercely. I feel so fortunate to have known her and extend my deepest sympathy to you both and your families. I wish I could be in Marblehead to honor her and say goodbye but am out of state at the moment. I’m sending prayers of strength and healing to you all.

Fondly,
Lori Cudihy McHugh
