  1. Dear Jeannette and Liz, Sue remembers with great fondness visiting your grandmother and your parents at your home in Harmon Street and the warm welcome from your mother. How kind she was! What long conversations we used to have! Other friends would also call in and Sue remembered that she must leave because lunchtime was approaching. Later during Sues visits your mother would call to Andy, confined to bed upstairs, to ask Are you alright? Over the last few years we kept in touch with occasional phone calls. We share your loss and hold you and your families in the Light. Sue and Peter Day, New Port Richey, Florida.

  2. Dear Jeannette & Lizzie: Your parents were so fond of my dear husband Ed, as was your grandmother, Goggie. I recall dancing with your father @ your cousin Joe Schenck’s wedding years ago. Your Mom & Dad were always so cordial to us & I recall visits to your home in Hamden when you were very small. I’m sorry for your loss, which, I know, is enormous. I wish I could represent the Higgins branch of the family @ services this week but I just learned the news an hour ago & I have another funeral to attend locally; my prayers will be with you. Sincerely, Nol Higgins

  3. Jeanette and Lizzie, I’m so very sorry for your loss. I have such wonderful memories of your Mom. It’s not easy losing your parents, I went through it too. Just know that the both of you are in my thoughts and prayers…. Lot’s of love, Sharon Miller Lynch

  4. Dear Jeanetti and Lizzie and families, I just found the news of your loss of your mother and a flood of happy memories of after-school visits and later, summer visits with my kids, came rushing up. Jeanette and Andy’s home, your childhood home, was always a warm, welcoming and wonderful place to visit – full of art and projects and pets and happy dinners, and your lovely grandmother whom I’d known since my early childhood. My daughters Catto (Catherine) and Sarah have some of their happiest memories of summer time in New Haven visiting .the Nettes. (as they called you ALL!) – and Jeanette was always there at the middle of your wonderful family. Our warmest wishes and sympathy for your loss, and thanks for so many special memories of time spent together. With love to you all from Canada, Elise and Catto and Sarah
