    Remembering mom. She was an avid sports fan, especially the Red Sox, the Bruins and the Celtics. She was a great mom, was always there for me, and she cared so much. I miss you, mom.

  2. Mark Bost says:

    Millie was a great Mother-In-Law. Thinking back there was only one disagreement I remember having with her, and I am not the most agreeable person. She welcomed me to the family. She never criticized me regarding the care of her daughter, my wife. I’ll always remember the time at Camden Yards watching the Orioles and she knew more about each player on both teams than the announcer. Millie treated me more like I was her own son, and I often felt as if she were my second mom. She raised some great kids. I miss her, may she please rest in peace. May all of you who love her please be blessed with comfort.

    Mrs. Blair was the sweetest woman. She was a customer of mine at the bank and I loved when she would come in for a visit. I am so sorry to hear of her passing. To her family and friends I’m so sorry for your loss.

    Mrs. Blair was one of my neighborhood moms. She was kind, thoughtful, caring, and sweet. She always made us kids feel welcome in her home and put up with all our crazy antics with her signature giggle! Mrs. Blair was a one of a kind, gentle soul who I am blessed to have known. She will always be a part of my happy childhood memories and I will be eternally grateful for showing me love and encouragement. I will miss her but she lives on in my heart. Love, Sharon

    Mrs. Blair was a very sweet woman and a kind soul. Having grown up two houses away and being best friends with her daughter, Barbie, I spent countless hours at her house. She was definitely a mother to all around her. She was loved by all. And she will definitely be missed by all. May she rest in peace.
    Love to Barbie, Mark, Janet and Bob
