RIP Mrs. Mulvan. You were a part of my teenage years in Hamilton when I was growing up and at the time, a good friend of your son Brian. You always made your home, my home, whenever I was around with sleep overs, pool visits, and staying out too late with Brian. And you always had a smile on your face. I know it must be hard on your husband James (a great guy who always made me feel at home as well) after so many years and your family. God bless.
