  1. Dear Mary
    It’s been a long time since our days at Southern Berkshire Community Action. When I saw your mother’s obituary, I knew I wanted to reach out to you with my condolences. I didn’t know your mother, but knowing what a good person you are I am quite sure your mother must have been a good person herself, and a good man other. I’m sorry for your loss.

  2. Mary and Ben. So sorry for the loss of your mother. We are glad that you had time to spend with her in her last years. Losing a parent is a huge loss. It takes time to get over the loss.
