I have such wonderful memories of our times with Terry and Paul. Terry and I taught together for many years and our friend ship continued through almost 50 years, and we spent many happy hours with both of them. We are sorry to have missed her service, but only just learned of her passing. Please know our thoughts are with you all.

So many wonderful memories to share! I will never forget clamming with Grandma first thing in the morning, playing piano with her or making clam chowder from scratch. Grandpa singing Alouette to us all the time or braving Hurricane Bob together at their house in Eastham. Two of the best people I was so lucky to have in my life. Their love and happiness for life will live on in so many ways.
