My condolences to the family. My father was friends with Joe and Eleanor and was their Mailman for decades. I remember him going into the shoe store when I was a kid to "shoot the breeze" with Joe.

My condolences as well, on behalf of our family to the McLoughlins!

Living first a few doors down and then above them was always a pleasure.

What a wonderful woman, couple, and family!
