  3. Dear Tom,
    I was saddened to hear of your Mother’s passing.
    I remember seeing her years ago when we were both students at St. May’s Boys & you lived in the Underwood Block.
    She was a pretty, friendly & kind woman & she had a wonderfully long life.
    My condolences to you & your family.

    Frances Wood was a resident at George Boyak the same time as my mother-in-law. We enjoyed chatting with your mother and my favorite memory of her is of her in her high heels (of course) pushing another resident much larger than her petite self along in a wheel chair to friday morning sing song.
