I did not know you well. I married your cousin, Roach, (John McGuire) and we moved to Mamaroneck. I saw you sporadically through the years, but, once Johnny moved to Mamaroneck, life took over. a few years back, your son, Michael, threw a BBQ, and it was the 1st time in a LONG time we had all got together. It was so much fun!!
I heard you were in the hospital and it brought memories of my Mom's battle. So, I went to visit you. I know It must have been odd, we didn't really know each other, but, I enjoyed talking with you. When you went home, I was happy for you, because that's where you wanted to be, as did my Mom. My last visit to you, I brought Carvel and sherbet. You told me you couldn't eat much and drinking was a problem, it was painful to swallow. I asked you if you'd like to try some sherbet, and you said yes. What I'll remember is your smile as you ate the sherbet. Your smile gave me a smile and a memory AND, you finished it all. Rest in Peace, Dear Maureen...you are now in God's arms and pain free!!

I remember her when I was in 5th or 6th grade, she was dating Mickey and she played that song, "Mickey's Monkey" until the grooves were worn down. I was very friendly with her sister Kathy. RIP Maureen.
