Dear Jill,
I just found out today that your Mother passed in April. I am so sorry to hear this. I know she found my Mother and Stanley, and Im sure they are continuing their shenanigans as they did at Epoch. Heaven now has the famous GAS Group as they were so fondly called at Epoch. Gert became a good friend of my Mother's, and we all enjoyed her company.

My deepest sympathy to you and your family,

Maryellen Shea

Dear Eddie, Jill, and Doug,

I just found out about your Mom's passing and wanted to send you our belated condolences. I know this must be a very difficult time for all of you and our thoughts are with you. I will always have fond memories of visiting your folks home in Melrose during the Tufts years and seeing your Mom (and Dad) on this Cape. Again, we are thinking of you.

I send my deepest sympathy at so great a loss, made more difficult by your inability to be with her as she passed into Glory. I am sorry I did not have the blessing of knowing her. I know of her from her daughter Jill who is a wonderful friend of our community the Medical Missionaries of Mary. Be assured of our prayers in the coming days.
