    Anna, Brenda, Maureen, Rebecca, and Beverly,
    I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your mother. She was so close to our family that we always referred to her as Aunt Gloria. I remember stopping off at her house after school (e. Boston) and when she moved next to Auntie Anna’s house in Revere, it was nice to visit both my loved aunts. I will treasure the memories of her and hold them in my heart. There are no words to express my saddness. May God’s loving arms surround and comfort you through this sorrowful time.
    Much Love and my depest condolences,
    (Sandy Reynold’s daughter)

    Dear Anna, Brenda and girls:

    Your Mom and My Mom were best of friends. We grew up in the Maverick St Projects. Your Mom pierced my ears when I was 8 years old and you lived on Harve St. Your Aunt lived upstairs. We used to go on Sunday picnics when our Dads were home from the Navy. I hope you remember. My family and I would like to express our deepest sympathy. We will miss your Mother.

    Sandy Reynolds and Family
    Linda, Patricia and Deborah

Send your condolences.
