Johnny and Donald,
I don't even know where to begin. From the time I was born and arrived at my first home on Banks Road I knew your family from the very beginning. Your mom made my toddler years and older a joy. She was a second mom to me. Johnny and I had so much fun doing adventurous things in the neighborhood and woods. From playing on the vines in the woods at the end of Banks Road to playing football, cowboys and Indians, cops and robbers. Loved shooting Mike's air pellet pistol. You name it. And all the civil war gum cards and Mad magazines we had. It was a blast. Also listening to rock music especially in Mike's room. Seems like he had the neatest stereo. I loved spending the nights there after we had moved to Craig St. from Banks Road in 1963. Your mom was the best cook. I loved having meals at your house. She was also a great cub scout mother. I really miss those days. I feel for your loss and I always will remember Christine. The photos you put on this website were fantastic. I know she loved her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. What a wonderful family. Take care and hope to see you down the road.

John and Donald,
So sorry to hear of the loss of your Mom. I think back to the 70's and coming over to your house to listen to music. Sometimes Jim Grogan was there and other times Victor Rakes. She was always very nice and cordial to me and I always appreciated that. Hope you guys are well.
