I have fond memories of Lainey when we were freshman at Crockett Hall dorm (really a small house for 16 of us so we got to know each other well)
What I didn’t know was that she played piano because I was the one who played while everyone sang. She was a little bit shy and I wasn’t!
I do think she must have been a wonderful kindergarten teacher. Her quiet voice and dignity were evident then. We lost touch after college but I hope she had a happy life and was sorry to hear of her passing

I remember Helaine as a beautiful sweet little girl she was an only child and her parents adored her
The Groman family was loved in Winthrop and I have nothing but the finest to say
