Libby: Norma MacRae now Comoletti- read of your dad’s passing. He was a nice man and lived a long life. Praying for you at this sad time. My mom Mary cared for George Ellis at your family home in Dedham many years ago.

Libby, you were so dedicated to your dad, I’m sorry for your loss. We frequently joked about him being the ‘oldest newspaper delivery boy’ but he loved delivering the daily chronicles. He’d wave to those in bed, or tip his hat, and greet his friends and acquaintances in the hall. Whether it was his pink cowboy hat, his military ‘flyboy’ hat, or his Americana cowboy hat, he was easily spotted in a crowd! He was so kind to everyone!
Thinking of you,
Trish Barker
