    I was a classmate of “Dottie” (as we fondly called her) Natick High School ‘53 – she was friendly & cheerful and a sweet gal. Our prayers and thoughts go out to her family at this time……may God hold her in the palm of His Hand til we meet again.

    The tide recedes, but leaves behind
    bright seashells on the sand.
    The sun goes down, but gentle warmth
    still lingers on the land.
    The music stops, yet echoes on
    in sweet, soulful refrains.
    For every joy that passes,
    something beautiful remains.

    Thinking of you Tim, Jane, Laura and family

    I was shocked to read of Mrs. Donnelly’s passing, but stunned when I read in her obituary of the late Moira…
    Moira was a student in my first classroom at the old Whitefield School. I remember how Mrs. Donnelly would come in for parent-teacher conferences and listen attentively with that little smile on her face as I recounted Moira’s academic achievements.
    My heartfelt condolences to all the Donnellys.
