I have more to say, but I know that everyone wants to plan for the wake and funeral. Here are the dates and times.
- * The wake will be on Friday, September 11 from 4-8 p.m. at the Fowler-Kennedy Funeral Service, 42 Concord Street, Maynard, MA.
- Again, please no flowers. Donations would be appreciated in Jean Mattson’s name at Buddy Dog Humane Society of Sudbury
- There will be a graveside service on Saturday, September 12 at 10:00 a.m. at Glenwood Cemetery (entrance near intersection of Marlboro Street and Great Road in Maynard).
- There will be a reception afterwards at the family home about 1/4 mile away. I will post here later a way that you can signal if you are planning on coming to the reception, as we are going to try to figure out how many people to plan for that.
Please watch here for more details.
Today, Dad (Wally), Jane, Rob, and I all met with the funeral director, and also did some work around the house. We are planning to have a grand clean up day on Monday, September 7 (Labor Day) to get the place ready and relieve Dad and Jane of a bunch of work in the future. Dad’s next door neighbors Veronica and Gerard helped out a lot today with pruning hedges and raking up brush. There will be a lot more to do. I will be posting more later with particular requests for assistance.
Thanks again for your support. We’re all sort of exhausted and numb.
