I am sorry for you loss. I had the pleasure of working with your mother for many years. She will always be Mrs. McDonough to me. She was kind and gentle in her interactions with all. Mrs. McDonough made the Northbridge Junior High office a welcoming place. I was able to become a better Principal because of her.
