    Dear Denise and Carol,

    I am so sorry I learned of your mother’s passing just today. My mother, Virginia and Ann were great friends at the phone company. From Chelsea to 245 State Street they went way back.
    She was a wonderful lady and always remembered my son in a special way.
    Our thoughts are with you both; it’s such a difficult loss.
    Fondly,
    Theresa

    May 29th, I just read the obituary tn the Winthrop Transcript. I was so sorry that I missed all of the arrangements. I considered, Ann a dear friend. We had a lot of good memories when we all worked in the Chelsea Business Office, along with, Ella. But Ann was special to me. We both ended- up working in the same building at 245 State St and would frequently have lunch or coffee break together. Ann is the one who got me interested in collecting Lladro figurines, after seeing her collection. They were so beautiful.
    She will be in my prayers, as will Carol & Denise.
    Love to you all, Lee
