  • my wife would be lost if not for GMG..she anticipates it’s arrival, ask’s her friends if they’ve read it yet, and spends the 51 weeks and 3 days that we’re not in Gloucester living the Cape Ann life vicariously!
    If we could find a generous resident with one foot in the grave and another on a banana peel,who’s last wish was to provide a beautiful place for someone to pass the time…please don’t hesitate to contact Jane in Liverpool, NY!


  • Hello, trying to reach Moira Kelly. We went to high school together. Please look me up on FB.
