Mrs. Savage was superwoman to us! I feel fortunate I got to meet her when I moved to Butler St, Lawrence Ma. 45 years ago. She was always busy, always laughing and loved life! The Savages invited me to spend summers in Maine every year when they moved during our 6th grade year. She cooked the best french toast and carted us to the beach every day without a complaint...always joy. Even when I got my head stuck in the bannister and I turned on the shower while a group of us were hiding during a birthday slumber party, Mrs. Savage always forgave me and had a good laugh afterward. I feel blessed to have known her and her wonderful family. I no longer pray for her but to her to keep us all safe, healthy and to help us model her values and goodness. Mr. savage, Chery, Gerry, Ellen, John , Jen and your families...our deepest condolensces on your loss. Love, Mary Ellen , Ron and Family

To uncle Gerry, and my cousins and friends, Cheryl, Ellen, Gerry Jr., John and Jennifer. Our hearts go out to you, with love and sympathy, peace and serenity. Auntie Jen has always been so Important to me and instrumental in my life. She was a tower of strength, and love and everything good. She would put things in perspective for me, offer support and encouragement, and always make me laugh. Auntie Jen will forever be in my thoughts, and always found in my hopes, keeping my heart happy, inspiring my smile, and gracing my favorite wishes and memories.

Though our paths may widen, I will always think of you. Wherever you go, wherever you are, I will think of you. There is no place among the stars that is too far to keep me from thinking of you. When I drink, I will think of you. When I eat, I will think of you. When I rejoice, I will think of you. Ah, when I think of you I will rejoice, and rejoice, and rejoice.
Charlene, Fred, Travis, Karen, and sister Marie.
