Mary Lou was my favorite cousin on my mother's (Peck) side of the family, one reason was that she was thP closest in age.
We went to Roger Williams park when we were young. She will be missed.

Dear Barbara Ann and Patrick, Your Mother/Grandmother was a very special person to us. She was a most kind, sweet, and generous Aunt like no other, the best Aunt. She remained an active part of our children's lives, and we cherish the memories of those many Thanksgivings we shared. All of our lives have been touched and blessed by her positive, upbeat, and giving presence. She remains a truly beautiful soul who, we're sure, is lovingly looking over us all.

Barbara: Very sorry for your loss but memories are forever. I remember living on Garden St. with your parents on the 1st floor, Mrs. Morton on the 2nd, & my family on the 3rd. On summer evening everyone was on the front steps having a beer and enjoying life. Your Dad always played catch/baseball with my brother & I. Your parents were wonderful people and will be remembered. God be with you and your family.

Barbara, My deepest sympathy to you on the loss of your Mom. My mother (Eileen Schenck) and your Uncle Dan Martin were siblings. I would often see your Mom around Cranston. She was such a lovely woman -- always asking how the family was. May your memories of happier times bring you comfort now and in the days ahead.
