Phyllis, Rosemarie, Diane and family, our deepest condolences for the loss of your Mom. Our family will always have such fond remembrances of Rose Mary and Russ from our time remodeling our cottage in Old Lyme. We lived just a few doors down from their home. Such loving and caring people, we felt adopted by them as family. Their kindness and hospitality was always warm and loving and made our time in Old Lyme so warm & memorable. Their love was a great demonstration of their faith in Jesus Christ. We miss you Rose Mary and Russ.

Diane, Phyllis and Rosemarie,
I was greatly saddened to hear the news of your mother's passing. She was the most generous hostess and always made me feel welcome every time I visited with you. I can never think of her without picturing her enjoying her Florida room in your home. She loved the beach, and I have many fond memories of her both in Florida and down at the shore.
