Condolence & Memory Journal


Posted by McManus - Melrose, MA - Sister   March 03, 2020

I will miss the laughter that we used to share. You always were this sweet, but take no prisoners type of woman. I really liked that about you. I will miss sitting under the carport at Gigi's house talking about the past and the present while you smoke your cigarettes and we laughed. You were 1 of the good 1's and I will forever remember you my friend. R.I.P. buddy. Mike

Karen, I will always remember all the fun times we have had over the years. The hilarious nights playing bingo that have created inside jokes that lasted for years, spending time at the camp, and going out to Eggies Diner, just the 2 of us. There will never be another like you. I hope to see you again someday. Love Lis
