    I remember many family gatherings at the Dracut home . I was able to have that summer trip to Greece in the summer of '72. Sorry for your loss.

    Some of my best memories growing up were with your family and were overseen by your mother, "Aunt Ann". A person who made everyone feel at home and special. I think of her often and am truly sorry for your loss. My prayers are with you all during this overwhelming time. I'm sure she will be with so many of our loved ones again and at peace. Love and peace to you all.
