Our deepest sympathy to Larry and their children, Ryan, Sean, Meghan and Kayleigh. We enjoyed our time spent with Maureen. Loved to listen to her stories, talk about all our children and how happy we were that our daughter Ryan and their son Sean found each other. We'll miss Maureen but will always remember her with a smile.
