    Susan, I was very fond of your mom. She taught me how to play MJ 50 Years ago. Do you remember babysitting on snowy days so we could play? I teach the game twice a year at the JCC in Woodbridge. If you are interested, I have a class starting October 6th. Stanley and I send our deepst sympathy to you and your family.

    Dear Susan, Michael and families,
    I was your mother’s volunteer Chaplain at the Masonic Health Care Center. During the past year, we grew to be very close friends. We enjoyed many long conversations and much laughter! She told me the stories about her cousin Helen Mirren, the actress, when they were young. Each summer, Helen’s family would come to visit their family in the United States. Helen would tell your Mom, with a “superior air”, “We don’t like the United States!” So much for that, since she can attribute her fame to the Hollywood Studios! I was the one who made her the framed photo of Helen, which you might have seen in her room. I was present at her service today, though arriving a bit late, and so I stayed behind to wait with Marcia as her burial was completed. It seemed a fitting thing for me to be with her at that time. I shall surely miss the special lady who always addressed me as “My Friend” and brightened up my day every time I visited her. She will always be in my heart.
    With heartfelt sympathy,
    Joan Duffy
    Hamden, CT
