  1. Joyce and Lynette: My sympathy on the death of your mom, Louise. I remembered all of you from my time in Meriden. My parents, Gordon and Irene, were friends of Herb and Louise. Your dad come to my father’s funeral in Ohio in 1985. I discovered Louise at the Curtis Home when visiting my aunt, Mary Canaveri, deceased in 2006. We talked whenever I was there. I visited your Mom last in April and October of this year. We corresponded at holidays. I admired her courage and patience. I will miss my visits with her. May she rest in peace. My best wishes to both of you. Bill Arnold

  2. Joyce and Lynnette, I was so sorry to hear through my Aunt Louise (my dad, Gordon’s, sister) that your mom had died. I had sent her some photos my dad took of your dad when he was heading off for the army as so many of the young men did back then. Your mom was always so nice to me and I received the sweetest note from her about a month or so ago. She never mentioned that she was not feeling well. However, I know she suffered for all those years with RA and no doubt, that takes its toll. My mom, Irene, always spoke well of your mother and had great sympathy for the pain she was in through the years. Well, now they are all with the Lord and enjoying each other’s company. Please accept deepest sympathies from me and my husband, Jim. May God grant your mom eternal rest. June and Jim Jackson

  3. My condolences on the passing of your Mom. I brought her communion for many years and thoroughly enjoyed my visits with her. Many times, one of my sons would come with me to spend time with her. Your Mom was a special lady who loved the two of you very much. I know that she is in a better place with the love of her life, your Dad.
