What a lady Margaret Mary was! She always had a rebuttal to my dad(Andy McHugh) and his teasing teasing. She is with her dearest husband now who left us way too soon many years ago.
You guys do realize she’s going to think the St Paddy’s Day parade is a great send off for her, don’t you?
So Uncle Andy has yet another niece to kid and joke with -I’m sure he gave her a great Irish Welcome and introduced her to all the “big guys”…Rest In Peace Margaret Mary – your work here is done.-you and Ray raised a fine family to carry on your good name.
