Gina and Peter, so sorry for your loss. We have fond memories of sitting on the porch on McKinley Ave and having many conversations with your Mom. Those photos of your Mom are so beautiful. Love and condolences, Maura Carr-Duffey and family.

Gina and Peter,
So very sorry to hear of the passing of your lovely Mom.
So many happy memories of her on McKinley – can still hear her voice and one-of-a-kind accent!
(I can also still hear Buttons screeching in the background!)
Take comfort in knowing your parents are together again and their love story continues.
My deepest sympathy to all of you.

My Aunt DoDo helped care for me in Germany and when we came to the U.S. I loved her completely. I was very jealous of uncle Bob when he first tried to steal her from me. He won and I learned to love him also. Aunt Doris instilled in me and nurtured my love for animals. Uncle Bob taught me hunter safety and how to shoot both guns and bows. I miss them both! Aunt Doris will live in my heart till it beats no more. Rest In Peace my sweet aunt.
