    Dear Maureen and John and all the family.

    As I sit here reading the Journal in Port saint Lucie FL.I was so saddened to read of Mabel going home to God, where I am sure He was waiting there with open arms to welcome her home.

    I spent many years in her loving company, and we had many good times together , Bowling, Fashion shows, Minstrel shows, Bazaar. and all activity from the Immaculata Guild.

    I was just thinking that when I returned to Revere in June for the summer I would call her, to see how everything was,.

    My deepest sympathy to you and I shall remember her In my Prayers.
