Today is the wake and funeral for Jessica Cormier, the girl who worked for my parents and was murdered last week.
I was at the family business Saturday and you could tell everyone there is devastated by the loss. I’m told she could handle any task around there. Having worked there as a teenager and early twenty-something, I can tell you that’s no small feat.
I’m sorry I never got to know her, but I’m grateful to her for helping the family as she did. For those who want to pay their respects, here’s the wake and funeral information, from the Boston Herald death notice:
