    Michael&Family- Please accept my sincere condolences. I became aware of your mother’s passing from a K of C notice. I am in Florida and unable to attend your mother’s memorial services. I have fond memories of your mother working in the restaurant when Joe DelGrosso and I would visit the North End many years ago. Please extend my sympathy to your family.
