    Richard I just saw that your Mother had passed in January. I am so sorry to hear this. I worked for many years with Cindy at the Bank and we continued our friendship after that. She would join Mary Dowd and myself on some day trips to Maine to see Nubble Light which we all thoroughly enjoyed. I know how close you were to her and you will have many happy memories, and I am sure knowing your Mother
    some funny ones.

    Cindy lived at Ironwood On The Green in Middleton Ma. We met and joined a social group where I learned we both had attended Immaculate Conception High and were cheer leaders although I did not know her at the time. She added her great personality to the group and we enjoyed her so much. It was a great time! My sincere thoughts and prayers to her family. Ann Desmond

    Dear Richie and Michael,
    So sorry to learn of the passing of your Mom. She was always so nice and such a sense of humor! My Mom really enjoyed her. We will keep you and her in our prayers during these difficult days. I wish I could offer my condolences in person but because of the covid virus and my husband’s health status I can not attend.
