Rest in Peace Maureen. Thank you for being so kind to me when i was a little child. I will always remember that kindness and those plastic high heels you got me and Eileen every Christmas from Woolworth's - I even loved the clear plastic "pocket book" they came in!

With loving remembrance,

Your little sister Deirdre
