    To my cousins, I'm sorry I couldn't make the wake or funeral. I still wear the old-style red RedSox hat your mom bought for me when I was living in California. It's my go-to hat whenever I hike in the local woods here in Douglas. It makes me think of her every time. By best memories are of the Quinlan family cookouts in your backyard when we were kids. Love, Joe and Pamela Dumas

    We are so very sorry for your loss. My mother Ginny Cleary enjoyed spending time with Betty Ann when they were young and later in life going to lunch. Betty Ann was speciial to both Ginny and her sister Shirley Soucy. After my mom passed away my Aunt Shirley and I took Betty Ann to the Wenham Tea House for lunch in memory of my mom. I gave her a scarf and pin belonging to my mom as a momento. The girls are all together again. Prayers to all of you. Shirley and Gene Gallo
