Maureen visited my family in Ireland in the 1980s (The Callaghans & McCabes being related) & shortly after her return to Maryland, a big wooden chest arrived with goodies for everyone in the family. My gift, inscribed by Maureen, was a collection of Great American Novels - including Tom Sawyer & Call of the Wild. Maureen helped cultivate a love of literature that has persisted for me & I will never forget her kindness.
