I’m sad to learn of the passing of my special friend, Hans, who got to enjoy our Wellesley Council of Aging in our new Tolles Parsons Center the past two years, along with his soulmate, Jane! I’m sure you all have wonderful memories but I shall never forget his love for family and strong will to live. RIP, my friend. 💔

Ellen and family, sorry for your loss, remember the goods times

I remember your dad would often drive me home after a playdate and he had his cool VW bug in orange if memory serves. It seemed a very cool car for a Dad. I also remember seeing him in his theater productions. I hope your memories of the fun times will lessen the pain you feel now. May his love wrap around you and give you comfort.
