    Mary, Jimmy, John and Family,
    My deepest condolences. Ma Best was the “best”. Loving, caring, hard working, funny. I will always remember the good times as far back as Wyman St. Another piece of our life is gone but she leaves us with wonderful memories. Love you all.

    I have many fond memories of Margie. We met in the 7th grade at the Mary Curley School. I met my husband Terry from her and her husband Bill. They were both nicknames Scotty cause they came from Scotland.
    Many prayers for the family, Dorothy Ford, God Bless the family from the Ford Family.

    I am so sorry to hear about Aunt Phyl. Never a year would go by that I didn’t look forward to her sending me a Christmas card and wishing my family happy holidays. I was just able to get on my computer to look for the announcement and although I missed sending flowers to the funeral, I will definately donate in her name. When thinking of her, my memory of her sitting on the couch at my moms house in Spring Valley comes back to me, and a very old picture of mom and Aunt Phyl all dolled up hugging and posing together when mom and dad were dating. Again, please accept my condolences to you all, I will always have fond memories of her. Bess and family.
