Lynne and Lisa,
I write this note to you both with a very heavy heart. A friend of mine from Waterville sent me your mother's obituary arriving yesterday. Your mother was a very special friend of my mother, Stella Orr also of Waterville. My mom passed in 2014 while in my care in TX but prior to her moving in with my family I had the pleasure over the years to get to know your mother during my visits to Waterville. Even after my mother's passing, while visiting other family we still have in Southern Maine, I would venture to Waterville to visit my family's gravesite and stop in to say hello to your beautiful mother. I would call her on occasions as well to check up on her. I have spent many joyful times with her and the "gang" at McDonalds on KMD, enjoyed dining with her and my mom, sharing her fun stories about her cats and of course always checking in to see what current color she mixed up to paint yet another room. She had the most adorable and welcoming home and took pride in all her handy work from painting to sewing - not to mention her baking! Your mom was gorgeous inside and out . . . always dressed to perfection . . . always so stylish and youthful . . . and I'll truly miss my visits with her when our family travels to Maine again. It will not be the same without seeing her bright smile and getting one of her welcoming hugs. I loved your mom to pieces and know she is probably with my mom visiting and sharing stories about their special times together. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you at this very difficult time. Blessings, Rosselyn (your mom called me Roz) Orr Hyland (We lived on Violette Ave.)
