    It is sad news to hear that Betty Ann has passed. I have not seen her in many years… She was a very good friend though. Right out of college she helped me get my first real job at ICSC in Boston. I have to believe that she was instrumental in getting me off on the right foot with my professional career. For many, many years I commuted with Betty Ann and her mom by car into Boston in the days before Rt 93 was completed. The ladies always drove. The Rastellini family extends our deepest condolences to ‘Red’ (John), to Mrs. Comer, to Ed and to the extended Comer/McNally/Goodland family.

  3. Tina Szoka and Greg Rheaume
