    Lee,Since I do not have your address in Stow, I want you to know how sorry I am that you have lost your mother. I missed seeing the notice, but learned about your loss while at Trinity Church today. I was a guide at the Concord Museum with your mother for many years, and we became good friends and had a good time there together.
    My parents used to eat lunch at the Union Club in Boston and often saw your mother there with your father before their marriage. They said they were so happy when they learned that they were married and had enjoyed watching their romance develop.

    It was 36 years ago that I met your family in Vermont and had kept in touch with your mother for most of those years.She was a great person and friend and a lot of information was not submitted on her education and when she taught at BU and was at the museum at Concord.

    Lee…..I just returned home from vacation and read about your mother’s death in the paper. I’m sorry for your loss, and I’m sorry I never knew her as she sounds like she was a wonderful and very talented woman per the remarks above. She had a long and fulfilling life as an educator, and I’m sure the Concord Museum loved having her there. You must have been very proud of her and have many great memories to cherish.
