Dear Kate and family, I’m so sorry to hear of the loss of your Mom. I never had the honor of meeting her, but feel as if I did, hearing about her through the years. You were such a good daughter. Love to you and Kim and your family. Hil & Ken xxx

Kate, Reading about your Mom’s life on this site, we think you must be very much like her. We send you our love and condolences and a big virtual hug. We’ve missed seeing you and the gang every Saturday and hope to resume our regular spots when this is all over. Love, Rita & Tom

Sorry to hear about the loss of your Mom. I will always remember the great 4th of July parties at VIP house and the LNO she hosted. Nora was such a wonderful person. I will miss her.

Nora and I served as young Jr. Counselors at Camp Shady Pines, and later met again when we attended Stonehill. I was able to visit her at Maplewood early on & share happy memories. She was so proud of all her children and grandchildren. My sympathy is with you as you grieve your loss. She was an amazing woman. (Irma) Marie Sherman

Dear Kate, John, Seamus, Mary, & Terrence, I am so sorry for your loss. Your mother was a role model to me. Your summers growing up on Coast Guard Beach were a haven for all. I distinctly remember first meeting all of you as young children at the VIP house with Denis Mac. During each visit, his goal was to get your mother laughing. As we know he had that special Irish talent and Nora would be belly laughing in no time. I recall all of you coming out of the bedroom and quietly staring intently at Denis while listening to his outrageous stories. I observed Nora as a loving and caring mother, an athlete, and a wonderful friend to so many. Her positive attitude, genuine interest in others, and zest for life was inspiring to be around. Liz Grees and I used to say “ Nora we want to be just like you when we grow up”. She was a true gem of a mother and friend and will be truly missed… Lise Hembrough-Nielsen
