Dear Patty, Mitch, Bobby and Barbara and family, Our heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with you and we are very sorry for the loss of your beloved Mary. It was gift to have my Aunt Mary as my godmother too. I will always remember your mother laughing at the stove cooking when we were kids and came to CT for lobsters. Patty - I will try and call you this weekend as I'm sure you have your hands full the next couple of days. Our deepest sympathy. Love, Debbie and Billy
