Vince, Dave and Mary, sorry to hear about your mom. She was a great lady and I have many fond memories of her and your dad and their close relationships with my mom and dad and their mutual friends Moose and Ace Clark . I actually remember the Waterford bake shop and going to 1st grade with your brother Joe. We became a lot closer working for your dad for 4 years at Dan Dee Donuts. My mother wanted to go to the church today and I had to beat her off with a stick because of Covid.

Stay well.

Dan Kennedy
