    Sorry to hear of Marguerite’s passing. Taly and I had a great time visiting with her a couple of years ago at her home in Scituate. She told us wonderful stories about my Grandfather and Uncles and her times growing up around Boston. We were glad to have the chance to spend time with her, and remember her fondly. – Pat and Taly Walsh

    Dave and Lisa, we have been with you and your family spiritually since we learned the news of Peggy’s passing. She was a wonderful person, and Bob was in tears upon hearing that she was gone. She was so very fortunate to go quickly and peacefully. With love, Bob and Mardie
