We love you and will miss you, god speed as you join G'ma. So many wonderful memories I don't know where to start. When I was little I loved going to the donut shop with you on Sunday mornings. You'd tell all your friends I was your granddaughter from Maine and I'd sit and listen to you talk with all your friends. And I loved how where ever we went in CT you 'd point out every house or business you had worked at and what kind of sink and fixtures you put in or what the homeowner had done wrong that you had to fix. I remember going to Clamp's for burgers, one of your favorite places to eat. And how the freezer in the basement was filled to the seams with ice cream and locally bottled soda. You ate more ice cream and corn on the cob in the summer than anyone I know. So many memories that will live on in my heart, love, Deanna

So sorry to learn of Ed's passing. My memories are of the annual Memorial Day observance at the Plymouth Congregational Church with Dorothy and Ed in attendance and the occasional seeing you both at the IGA. We shared a wonderful community in Terryville/Plymouth. Since retiring I miss those connections. Please know you and the family are in my prayers.
