So sorry to hear about Aunt Dorothy. I have great memories of visiting the Varuzzo compound, going to Pedrin's and running around Grandma's house in Adams. My thoughts are with you, Jerry, Dennis and Michael, and your families.
Your cousin, Linda Charbonneau Brown

From your old neighbors the Pytko family give our condolences to you. Back in the day we played whiffle ball in the back yard of your mom's house it would always end up Dennis beating up Mike, then Jerry beating up Dennis then your mom would come out yell at all of us, then we'd go back to our game. Good times. Steve Pytko
