  9. To all of Mary K’s family,

    So sorry to hear about Mary K. My dad was Lew Brady and in many conversations over the years he would tell how wonderful your mom and her sisters were to him when he visited Rochester when he was younger. Until my dad passed on July 28, 2013, Mary K would call him to check in or send him a card, this always meant a lot to him. I remember meeting many of you at our reunions, good memories of your mom and many of our other first cousins.

    • Hi Maureen, My mom spoke of your Dad and the Brady family often. Thank you also for your sympathy at this time, means a lot to our family.
      Love Karen

  11. My condolences to the Bubel family. Such find childhood memories. Despite having her own family, the neighborhood kids were always welcome, and sleep overs no problem! I will remember the trays of cookies & the band aids she provided due to my endless clumsiness. May she rest in eternal peace.

  12. My condolences to Karen & the rest of the family. I seldom saw any of my Aunt Pegs family from Rochester but on the rare occasion we did get together, it seemed like we knew each other well. It’s because of all the stories my dad shared about his loved ones over the years. He was very fond of all his nieces with Mary-K being one of his favorites. Dad came home to an empty padlocked house in Seneca Falls after spending several months in a convalescent hospital near Boston after being wounded in WWII. He soon made his way to his sister Peg’s house in Rochester for a bit of celebration after the war. Peg gave her three daughter instruction to make sure Uncle Lewie was comfortable during his short stay at their house. He said those girls waited on him “hand and foot”. Peg later cautioned him that the late night celebration were starting to reflect badly on the girls, so it was off to nearby brother Ed’s house on St. Augustine Street for a while.

    I find it interesting that my dad also passed away on July 28th several year back. RIP Mary-K!

    • Hi Tom , thanks so much for sharing that story and for thinking of me and my family. It means a lot. Hope you are doing well. Love Karen
