Jim, I just want to express my condolences to you and your family. Your Dad reached out to help me when I first started in this business. He had a way about him that you don't see much of any more. He was a great man and a pleasure to have gotten to know.

Dear Betsy,

It's been a very long time. Someone from Belmont asked me if I was related to a Denaro who passed from Watertown. Knowing I had no living Denaro relatives in Watertown I wondered if it might be your Father and checked the online Boston Globe as I haven't lived in MA since 1982.

I'm so sorry about your Father. I hope you had many wonderful years with him.

Deepest sympathy,
Lisa Denaro
