    It’s been a sad year for the McCullen’s. First the loss of his brother Tim and now 2 months to the date my Uncle Gerald passes. So many good memories of my Uncle. Love you Cousins.

  2. Mary Jensen-Dodge (Layeux) says:

    Our condolences to your family from your longtime neighbors in Richfield. I remember so many times Gerald washing and polishing his cars . They were always beautiful and clean! I remember the ice rinks your family had in the backyard and all the fun we had skating and watching the guys playing hockey. Sheila, we played together for most of our childhood. Remember when your cat had kittens? As I remember your comment was “Maynard had kittens!” Plays, parades, kickball, softball, there was always enough kids around to play some kind of game. Your family was a big part of my growing up in Richfield and I remember your Dad as a kind, quiet man. I hope you have many good memories of your Dad !
