    Bruce, Jeffrey, Eddie and family. I am so very, very sorry on the loss of your mother. I have so many fond memories of your mother, father and everybody growing up in our old neighborhood in Cranston. There was an open door policy back then not like today. We all shared so many good times with each other. Sharing meals, hanging out at the pool, and playing in the yards. So many great times. Again, my sincere condolences. Michael Gornstein

    She looked out after those people she admired.
