  1. With deepest Sympathy on the loss of beloved Aunt Mae. I will always remember all of the holidays she spent with up at our house in East Haven and especially all of the cookouts and pool partys at my grandmothers pool in Harbor Village. May she soar in heaven with the angels and all of those there that loved her so. I just bet that she and my grandmother are there with a deck of cards playing until their hearts are content.
