Jeez Merle. I just can’t say how much I am sorry. Your mom was a hoot! So full of spunk. I remember my sister telling me about meeting her at one of the Scituate Animal Shelter’s Christmas tree lighting ceremony. She said I couldn’t believe this lady. Dressed to the nines on a cold winter night with high heeled boots to make a donation. She impressed a lot of people including me!! And I know you are the most devoted daughter a mother could have. She’s saving you a seat at Foxwoods in heaven. She will live in your heart forever.

To you both
I remember your mother from my days of working at "Angelos" (now the VIllage Market). I so enjoyed waiting on her and getting to know her and sharing recipes. She was always upbeat and fun and always considered her as my friend. We'd meet occasionally when we were both out dining.
She was truly a special person and I'm so sorry for your loss. How lucky you were to have had her all these years. She was so proud of her family and you must have some wonderful memories to help you at this sad time.

Rosemary..... Rosie..... Brown
