Bruce & Mary: Your mother & father were always my favorite neighbors. You mother was always very polite and caring for the many children in the neighborhood. I will remember her always for her many kind gestures. May Our Lord, Jesus Christ greet her with open arms and shower upon her many blessings.

Mary and Bruce, it’s been many years since we lived as your neighbors on Puritan Road. I remember both of your parents very well. I know this is a time of great sadness and grief. But the picture of your mother with such a big smile should be comforting to know that she had a life well lived. She will be remembered for that smile by everyone who knew her. It is very hard to lose our parents. But hopefully soon, you’ll be able to remember her laughter, her smile, and what a joy she had in your lives and the lives of your children and grandchildren. With sympathy, your truly,
Marcia (Dion) Loughman

Dear Bruce and family--
So sorry for your loss. I loved Florence, her sense of humor and her kindness. She was lucky to have such an attentive and loving family.
I hope you, Patti and Phyllis, as well as your other family members,
will take comfort in knowing you were really wonderful to her.
May she now rest and may you know I'm thinking of you all.
