Mrs. Ferraioli was my best friends mom. She opened her home to me and others for many years. Once, when our school bus got stuck in the snow she took all the children into her home, fed them spaghetti, and kept them until late that night when their parents could finally get through to collect them. She took me in for days while my parents were at my sisters bedside in the hospital. She let me use her encyclopedias to work on my homework, sleep in tents in her yard on summer nights, invited me to her summer picnics, and hosted many baseball games in her yard. I had not seen her for many years but I will never forget her.

I will never forget growing up with Martha and having Peg open her home so lovingly to me whenever I wanted to visit. I still tell the story of the fluorescent bulb today to the delight of dinner guests. Peg told me that if I went out near the pond and held a fluorescent bulb up toward the power lines, that the bulb would light up! I said, no friggin' way! She said, yes friggin' way and got me a bulb. I went down to the pond, held it up, and that bulb lit up like Luke Skywalker's light saber!!!! I looked up at Peg who had a healthy grin.. She said, "Believe me now?" I believe, Peg. You will be missed, but you will bring wonderful warmth and humor to heaven!!!

I am 76 years old and for the rest of my life, if I were to list a different kindness, daily, for which Peg was responsible, I would pass away before the record was complete. She was a sister as well as a sister-in-law and a "super" aunt to our children.

My mother was too special to sum up here. To me she was the epitome of a generous spirit. I will miss her, but pass on her spirit of giving, charity and general selflessness to my son, Liam. Much love, Mama
