    Lois and family, my heartfelt sympathy for the loss of Maureen. I remember her every Saturday coming to visit you at work bringing you coffee and adding a “little” Baileys to her own or how when we would go over to your house after work, order from Mancini’s and then Mo would have to save us from Cody because he would only listen to her. She was so much fun to be around. May your happy memories comfort you now and know that she is finally at peace. Mimi
