I will miss our talks, your funny stories, Xmas merriment and most of all your kindness and love for the kids. You showed tough love, and believed in Courtney when she didn't believe in herself. I will miss your advise..Shine bright with Michael in the heavens!

Even though she spent the first two years of her life in Springfield and Indian Orchard, Mom was actually born at the Army Hospital in Waltham, Mass at 12:15 am on 12/30/1949.  My grandfather McGann (her father) was still in the Army Air Corps at the time, so that’s where they had to go—a 90-minute drive from where they lived on Westover AFB.

I still miss my Mom every day.  Still unpacking all of the boxes that we took from her house and the memories found in her and Dad’s things is sometimes overwhelming.
