Dear Cousins,
Such a sad moment to hear of your Mom's passing. I had such respect and admiration of her. As I watched her raise all of you and do all that was required at the motels, I knew she was a strong woman with a huge heart! I still hear her in my mind.... as I thought she had such a unique and lovely sound to her voice.
My thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this time and I pray that you find comfort in all your wonderful memories of her and that your hearts will heal from your loss.
With love, thoughts and prayers,

Wally Durkin

Hi Jane, Jimmy and family, so sorry to hear about your Mom. She was so wonderful and welcoming to me when we grew up in Waltham then Summer visits at the Cape. I have such wonderful memories of Aunt Helen & Uncle Dom during all the time's I spent at the Route 6 Motel!
Please let me know when her Mass will be held when this current uncertainty is over. I would like to attend.
