  1. I have fond memories of growing up on Lawrence St in Wilmington and spending time playing with Brian and Gary, a time gone by when you went home when the streetlights came on, each parent kept an eye on everyone’s kids, I felt right at home as my house was built by the same builder and pretty much the same. Rest comfortably Mary and know you were a big part of many children’s lives
