  1. Lisa and Gail and family…… This is Steve Calabro. We were very sad to hear of your mom’s passing. We have found memories of her and your dad in our Duren Ave neighborhood and at many family get-togethers. From all of us, Janet, David, Tony, John and families, please accept our sincere condolences during this difficult time.

  2. I am the new Resident Care Director at Waltham Crossing and Joan was one of the first people I met. She was so kind to me and made me feel so welcome. She checked in on me almost daily to see how I was doing. I loved seeing her smiling face. She will be missed by all of us here.
