I am so sorry for your loss. I am so glad that I stopped in to see Brud last fall. I hadn't seen him in years and only then learned of Gina's passing. It was so sad to see how lonely he was without her. They are together now.

I am so sorry for your loss. I just received the notice. I always admired Walter and had many a good times over the years at the Post Offices. I can remember him saying let me buy you a drink. I said ok I have a beer. No No he would say I want to buy you a real drink. Well it was the first and last time I would indulge in Drambuie. Or if you had a.bad cold he would say get a.bottle of whiskey and a room. He will be missed.

Dear Main Family,

I was the lucky realtor who serviced your parents in the sale of their home in Mansfield and then the purchase in Plainville.
I often went to the Mansfield home during the time it was being sold.....and that was more for my pleasure than for business. I loved their stories of their ventures together but loved even more how proud they were of their daughters. They were an old fashioned couple who took care of each other and were connected in many ways I envied. They loved the sojourns to Florida and always calculated when to stop for your mom's respite. I marvelled at their get up and go attitude and overall zest for life. I am sorry for this tragic loss... but know they loved you all and you made their lives complete. I will say special prayers for everyone of you... but I know Walter and Ginny are dancing up their now !!!
