Patti and Tom and Family, I worked with your Mom at Lynn Hospital. She was a very dedicated nurse. She is now in God's care with your Dad. Cherish the memories that you have of her as they will help you through the challenging days as you grieve. I will keep you in my prayers as current events and the Pandemic have been difficult for everyone. May she rest in peace! Sincerely, Anne M. Tisdell (aka Rowen) Webster, Massachusetts
