We just loved your mom & have many fond memories of her picking up my mom, Millie, and coming to our home for dinner. Diane & I visited with her in June & I am so glad we did. My heart goes out to all of you.

I'm better known by the family as DeeDee Lapierre. I just visited Aunt Anita when I was in No. Attleboro for my mom's funeral in June. She looked so good and was her usual cheerful self. I will miss her wonderful laughter, caring ways, and all the fond memories of growing up with her around. Jeannie and siblings, sending hugs from Vermont.
