  4. I remember Mrs. Lamont from my childhood, as being a friend of my Grandmother, Tressa Moon. When I was very small I thought her name was Mrs. Lemon, because I had misunderstood her name. She always had a smile on her face, and I’ll bet that never changed in the years since I saw her last.

  5. So sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. When I was very young I met her through the Soukey family. Christine Soukey & I went to many mother -daughter luncheons @ State St. Church with your mom. She was a very kind and generous person. I have & will always remember her fondly.

    With sincere sympathy,

    MaryEllen LaGrou (Muggins)

  6. Gary,
    Please accept my condolences on the loss of your mother. I will always remember her ever present warm and welcoming smile. Please accept my apologies for not attending her services – I simply missed any announcement in the paper.
    Take care.
