  2. Aunt Mame, Missy, Billy, Mike & Jim – I wanted to say how much we all enjoyed visiting with Missy last fall and we are so very sorry for your loss – I will always treasure the frequent visits from Uncle Bill & curling up on his lap just to hear stories he would tell about my dad & the family growing up in Chestnut Hill. Unfortunately we can’t all be there with you to comfort you – but know you are all in our thoughts & prayers! Love Hugs & Kisses,
    Heather, Rich, Tiffany & Lauren
    As well as the rest of the John S. Maguire Sr. Clan!

  3. Billy, so sorry to hear about your dad. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time, and also with your family. It has been a very long time since I have seen you or your parents, but please know you’re being thought of. Sincerely, Jan Spinuzzi:)

  4. Dear Missy, Mame, Bill, Mike and Jim:
    You are in our thoughts and prayers not only during your time of grieving, but always.

    Dearest Missy – It occurred to me that I have had the pleasure and honor of your friendship for 30 years now. There are a lot of memories of “Mac” during that time. He sometimes scared me when he would say in his big voice, “Mary Elizabeth”, but I know that it was always because he loved and worried about you. I will always remember him with a smile! Take care and God bless. Love, Pam (TWWGF)

  5. DEAR MISSY, AUNT MAME, BILLY, MIKE AND JIM,
    WE ARE SO SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS. WE’RE HERE FOR YOU ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT!
    LOVE,
    AUNT KATE, KAREN, BILL, MELISSA AND ANDREW

  6. Dear Aunt Mame and the extended Maguire Family,
    It was with deepest saddness that I learned of Uncle Bill’s passing. He was always so good to Melissa and I when he visited Grammie and Grandpa in Flourtown. I will always remember his kindness towards us. We never left him without a piece of candy in our hand. My love to you all, and my very deepest sympathies. God Bless!
