I am so sorry for your loss. Your Mom/Grandmother/Great Grandmother was a wonderful women. Always a smile on her face and you could see the love in her. My first thought after learning of Aunt Anne's passing was her smile when she said Speed. I have very fond memories of Aunt Anne and Uncle Roland's road trips to NJ & NY to pick up stain glass. They would stay with me overnight in Brooklyn. We'd have dinner, share stories and they'd have their martinis. Sending my love to all. I am sorry I will not be at the service. I will be there in spirit and know that Aunt Anne is in my heart and prayers.

Our family lived in Northborough from 1972-1975 and had gotten to know the Bassett family. My brother and I now reside not too far from there in Westboro. My sincere condolences to the family at this difficult time.
