To my cousins,
Although we’ve lost touch for all these years, news like this gives me pause to reflect on so many wonderful memories of my youth. I had the privilege of summers in Warren with all of the relatives within walking distance. Going to Lydia’s and Bill’s was always special. All the cook outs we had, , especially dad’s famous clam bakes are some of my best memories. We had charmed lives back then. I love you all, Arlene, Ann Marie and Estelle. My sympathies for your loss, Cousin Cindy
