To all my dear Nee family...………..I am so very very sorry for your loss. Mrs Nee was a force of nature, from the streets of Rockaway in the summers, to the streets of St Phillip Neri. A kind, devout nurturing soul with a sharp Irish sense of humor. I had the pleasure of meeting Mrs Nee yet again after many years in Bradley Beach New Jersey. This was at least four times on the Boardwalk, and of course I was invited back to Pat and John Joe's for the "craic" with my beloved shih-Tzu Rudy..Mrs Nee never skipped a beat- it was like she saw me yesterday...…...the last time I saw Mrs Nee before that was at Mr Nee's wake. And what a time we had in Bradley .... all my love to you all Debbie Kelly xoxox
