So sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. She was a fixture in my memory of growing up with the North Plymouth gang. She was a sweetheart to everyone. Your Dad and her were the perfect couple. Generous to all of us with everything they had. I will never forget her. May God bless.

Ed and family, I'm so sorry for your loss. I enjoyed talking to your mom when I was out walking and she was sitting on the porch, and always at the 4th of July Parade. She was a North Plymouth icon and will be sorely missed. My thoughts are with you. Stay well.

Eddie and David.
My heart goes out to you both
I remember all the times when we were younger
we had so much fun at the Pond.
Keeping you in my prayers.
The joy of the story is that
Lee, Eddie, and Bobbie are together again.
