Robbin, Chris, and Michelle,

I am so saddened. I have gotten to know your mom over these last 10 (!) years. She was always "one of the girls" and was so much fun during our many girls' nights at Robbin's. Her love of dogs, sense of humor, and worldly wisdom endeared her to me. She leaves such a lovely legacy in her children and grandchildren.

My thoughts are with you,

Barb Draughon

Dear Diane, Betsy, Robbin, and Chris, I am so saddened to hear of Cynnie's passing! Although I haven't seen her in years, I remember the great times we shared at the Franklin Square house in Boston , the rides into Boston on the train from Mansfield, and when we were roommates on Marlboro St in Boston! We always had so many laughs when Cynnie was around! The only time she got mad at me was when I used her toothbrush by mmistake! ! I still remember the fun we had riding around Boston in her "Triumph"!! She certainly Had a great personality and was so much fun to be with! My heart is with you all during your time of great sorrow. Please accept my deepest Sympathy. Love from Priscilla Pring Laidlaw
