    To Susanne, Karen, Bob, and Jennifer,
    I am so sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. I remember her from the years she was a Bluebirds and Campfire Girls leader. She was always a very kind, warm, and fun leader. I have good memories of sitting in her kitchen, making the “craft of the week,” having snacks, and laughing. I appreciate her patience, kindness, warmth, and energy. You all, and she, are in my thoughts.

    Dear Norm, Jen, and all the family,
    Bob Arsenault contacted me to tell me about dear Judy and I am so very sad and sorry to hear about her passing. She was my very dear friend and we worked together very closely in the extended day program for many years. She was truly a wonderful lady and I treasure my memories of time we spent together. We both worked every day from morning to night, ate breakfast together and shared lots of stories. When my mother died she was so kind and thoughtful and generous to me. There is no one with whom I worked that I thought of more highly. I will cherish the memories of those days forever. Jen, you were always one of my star teachers and did so well implementing the Houghton Mifflin program when we began its use in Wilmington. So many years together, all of us, and so many happy thoughts and memories. I wish I was closer but even at this distance if there is anything I can do for you just let me know. Grief is so terrible and, of course, the more we love someone, the more intense the grief but I know how much she loved you all so you have only good things to remember. She talked about all of you with such love and devotion. You were so lucky to have her, as were we all.
    Sincerely,
    Jerry
