  • Dear Ashley,
    I am very sorry for your loss. Jamie was my friend for many years. I sold him the house on Greene Avenue in Belchertown. I met him when he was a janitor at 16 Acres School in Springfield, MA. I lived right across the street from the school. I was 14 or 15 at the time. The other janitor was John Meltzer who now lives in Lincolnville, ME. The 3 of us became fast friends. As you know Jamie would help a complete stranger if he was in a bad way. He was a very hard worker. I have great memories of going to Maine to visit John in August
    to cut and split 15 to 20 cords of wood for the winter. We work hard all day and then we drank cold beer and ate like kings. Got up the next day and did it again. I will always remember the fun we had. I recall Jamie liked the french beer Kronenbourg. Some day I would like to talk to you about my friend and your husband. Til then know that Jamie is up in heaven probably
    asking God if he needs any help with anything.

    God Bless you,
    Mark McCarthy
