All my love to Julie and Peggy. My heartfelt sympathies are with you. I have such wonderful memories of all of us spending time together in Cohasset and North Conway. The memories I have may seem insignificant to some but are comforts of home that I can not express in words. I hope my deepest sympathy brings you comfort in some way. Love, Michelle xoxo
