  2. My heartfelt condolences to the Bose family. June was very good to all of us and I don’t know what my dad would have done without her help when Cheri was born and mom was ill. Between living across the street growing up and then next door while my kids grew up, I have many fond memories of your family.

    My thoughts are with you all.

  3. Our condolences to the Bose family. Mom would’ve loved to come to the service if weather would have permitted and if it was easier to transport her. I’m taking care of her at her house. You’re in our thoughts and prayers. Sue DeGuire Gibney and Marion DeGuire.
