Robin & Kevin,

I do not know what made me get on Watertown News-Junky tonight but I am glad I did.  I am so sorry to read Mrs. “C” has passed away. She was like my 2nd mother as your dad was my 2nd father, I loved them both very much. Your Mom and I kept in contact for years but as time passed we lost contact. I am so sorry for your loss and my prayers go out to you and your families.

I remember Mrs Curtis very well. She & Robin were good friends of my parents. I remember her wearing her hair in a bun, never so much as a strand out of place. Such a lovely lady.
RIP.

Robin, Kevin and extended family; So sorry to hear about the loss of your mom.  She will be missed.  Aunt Peggy was always really nice to me and my brothers, Tim and Todd.  When we would go down to her house to either shovel, snow blow, mow the lawn, etc. she always invited us in for treats.  As teenage kids we loved it. I only saw her about a half dozen times after she moved from Myrtle Avenue.  Wish I would have seen her more to say thank you.

May God bless all of you in this saddened time.  Our prayers and thought are with all of you.
