  1. I don’t know if you remember me, I’m Betty Pearson’s sister. I was Junebug in the old CB club. I’m so sorry about your father, Pat. My sympathies to you and your family. I was going to come to the wake at 3 today, but am not feeling good. I think I’m getting old.

  • I mourn the loss of my Uncle John with great grief. He taught me about investments from a very young age and took me to my first ticker tape event of the Stock Market. I will fondly remember him at his store in Norwalk with his butcher’s apron, sharpening his knives and providing everyone with great custom cut meats. May he rest in peace, and my condolences to his son and grandchildren. Love, Patricia
