  11. brian mcveigh

    today was a sad day for me but it was also a day that brought me great memories of all of the people I knew in Copley ave, from Peggy, Angela,Pete Jr and the late Pete Sr. Of Christopher too who always asked me if I was fixing it ! Lynne would be so proud and I am sure she is of the family she produced and the love.she provided and nurtured. All the 20 plus years together brought me such great thoughts and today at the funeral home I was reminded of those days and times that I will always cherish. I am proud of Peggy and Randy on how thy grew up and also very happy to see Alicia and Illian too. I cant get those times back but I will never forget and will think and remember often. Today even though it was a sad occassion I feel it was such a special day. Bob deserves so much credit for his devoted Love to Lynne. I hope you can overcome the sadness and focus on how much Lynne loved and took care of you. Everynight was a great meal and so many memories. Thank you for being part of my life. Lots of love to all of you

    Ange, Pete, Peggy…

    My sincere condolences on the loss of your mom. I stumbled upon Pete’s FB and saw she had passed, I’m sorry I didn’t know sooner.

    Your mom was always so great to me through the years, I LOVED that she called me Tarara!

    May she rest in peace in heaven.

  13. Peggy and family. Just learned of Lynne’s passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you. She is now in God’s loving hands. With deepest sympathy.

  14. I just want you back, Bella’s gone I haven’t seen her or heard from dee in months. I miss them – I don’t know for sure why we don’t talk anymore – but one day I just never heard from her again, like she just stopped answering – and i think it’s because I was in such a deep depression from losing you. Then the surgery. She didn’t like that it took so long to get better and now that I am / she’s gone, I’m Not sure. My surgery was so bad Ma – I wouldn’t wish that on anyone but I’m finally healed and don’t have to see the oncologist until the 19th of July!! You’d be elated. I’ve never been so lonely, you were so much fun and such a beautiful spirit. I’m doing the best I can to take care of poppop – God I love that man. – I’m getting to see him emerge and it’s nothing short of beautiful – he’s there for us too. Angela doesn’t come over much – it’s kinda like when you were here / but not. Aunt peg comes when she can – she misses you so much I wish I could take her pain. / Please come hug me in my sleep.
