    Just remember all the happy memories you have of your mother. She certainly loved going to the Xmas bazaars (even though she didn’t buy anything) and then loved going out to lunch. I’m going to remember all the happy stories she told me and what a real “lady” she was. Thoughts and prayers are with you.

    I don’t know if you’ll remember me, it’s been 55 years, but we were childhood friends in Dedham. I saw the Capone name in the paper and when I read your name in the notice I was transported back to being 5 years old, playing dolls at your house…a long time ago. I just wanted to send along my condolences.
