I met Andrea quite a few times when Joseph and I were with Gary and Jessica. She was always warm and welcoming and loved having a lot of people around, whether they were her children and grandchildren or not. Her love for her family and all children was returned tenfold and she deserved every bit of it. Her loss is a great one, but she is now with John and her beloved sons Gary and Brian.

Dear Kids,
My name is Cathy May - we were friends of John's from the Retreat House in Riverdale and then came to love your Mom after their marriage in 1970. Diane, I think you came with them to my brother Tom's graduation from Worcester Polytech.
I was so, so sorry to read of Mom's passing. She and I had a great chat last year and I had hoped to give her another call soon. She loved each and every one of you and you now all have your own private saint. Feel the love coming your way and draw strength from memories of all the good times. Cathy
