Many years have gone by, but I still have very fond memories playing at your house when we were young. Your mother was always so kind and soft spoken even when we left a mess in her kitchen after making cookies. To this day I remember her saying "a good cook always cleans up after herself".

May all your happy memories carry you through this time of loss. Know that you and David are in my thoughts and prayers.

Love Marie

Dear Judy and David

I just learned about the death of your mother. I have never forgotten working with her at Am Mut. She was always a favorite of mine. I often thought of her as I rode by her house on Wyoming Ave and hope she was well.

My sincere sympathy goes out to her family. Remember all the good memories you have had with her.

Dear Judy and Dave,

I was very saddened to hear of your mother's passing. She was a very important part of my life. I felt always close to her as I did my mother. Aunt Effie was a strong influence and support for me as well as my mom. I can remember the smell of her pantry...NUTMEG...she really liked nutmeg. I remember I would pull on her long braids/ponytail and then she would show her hand, a warning, and finally give

Judy and David,

Aunt Effie was a Special Lady to all of us. I grew up hearing Aunt Effie and Uncle Ol mentioned on many occasions. I'll always remember the two times "Us Girls" visited Boston. I especially remember the time we took Aunt Effie's old car out of the garage and with Judy driving, the six of "Us Girls" went shopping. There was hardly enough room for the six of us to make it home with all of our purchases.
