  • Best Friend, Jean, & Family….Oh, What to say at a time like this. Soooo many wonderful memories of
    our times together. Jean, you and I go back about 60 years. What stories we could tell, but won’t !!!!!
    Bill was such a handsome white haired guy. I loved him! Every time we go by your house on St. John
    Street I think of you. And, we can never forget the Falmouth Quarry when we ran out of gas. Bill was so
    afraid of your Dad and what he would say to us all.Your Dad wasn’t very happy, but we survived! When you come to Maine we can cry together and go back to the happy times. Thought of you all at the time
    of his memorial service and mentioned you all this morning in church during special prayers for friends.

    Much Love, Don & “Itty”
