    I first met Patsy, Manny Crystal and Pammy at Newfound Lake in New Hampshire while vacationing at Sleepy Hollow in the 1960s. My parents Bob and Nelda Stover enjoyed all of you. Although many years have passed I often think of the wonderful times spent at Sleepy Hollow. My sincere condolences to Crystal and Pammy. Cheryl Stover Claney Annapolis MD

    Please accept my deepest sympathy for the passing of Mrs. Mendonca. I was fortunate to know both of them, Manny first when my business was located in Salem. He was kind and industrious and I always looked forward to the time he spent at the shop. I met Mrs. Mendonca when I purchased their home on Raymond Ave in Salem. She and Manny seemed like a perfect couple and I could see how her encouragement and care was the driving force of their lives together and complemented each other. May they both Rest In Peace.
