    My favorite memories of you are from our youth, when we played with our toy cars on the sand pile, played marbles on the dirt road and rode our bikes to the lake. Those were good times. Rest in peace my brother.

  2. Jean MacKenzie says:

    My memories of you are the good times we had hanging out at the VFW, going to Red Sox games, Rockingham Park, Suffolk Downs, and other sporting events. I will miss you. Love, your sister Jeannie
