Dear Rosanne, Now and then I check obituaries at Conway's to see if there are friends or family I knew. Now I see your Mom's Obituary. God Blessed her with a long, good life. As a child I remember going to the grocery store on Main Street with our Ration Cards during World War II to buy butter and few other items. Nice to see that Mary Silva Mavroules and Jackie Silva are still doing well. You have a large, wonderful family now. My husband and I will be flying up to Mass. for memorial services for my and your Cousin Antoinette Amaral Butler and Jimmy Keith, husband of Adelaide Mello Keith. May you have cherished memories of both of your parents. Love, Cousin Ruthie Amaral Tripp, Cary, NC

I am so sorry for your family's loss. I had the pleasure of meeting Sally, because she was such a beloved friend of Irene Anastos. May they both RIP.
