Lou and Audrey
I am so sorry. While I lost touch with MJ many years ago, I never forgot her. She was a great friend

Dear Jane, Lou and Audrey,
I was so sorry to hear of MJ's passing from Paul Ochs. My deepest sympathy to all of you.

Dear Jane, Lou and Audrey,
My heart goes out to you for your great loss. There is a palpable unfairness to this. As with others who have commented, I can't help but think of M.J. in association with our idyllic summer lives in Milton and out at the Hoosic Club. M.J. was such a vivid and vital part of that. I specifically remember M.J. as the kind of truly delightful person that most of us rarely encounter during the course of our lives. Thinking of you.

Jane, Lou and Audrey
I'm so so saddened to hear of the passing of MJ. It seems like just yesterday we were all at the Hoosic club family night. We all shared some good times together. I will fondly remember MJ always.

Thinking of you all.

Audrey, Lou and Jane,
So saddened to hear of your loss. Some of the best memories are of the summer days at the Hoosic and the Hoffman family. Sincere condolences.

Lou, Audrey, Jane
Well I'm very saddened to hear about MJ, honestly it doesn't seem possible. Her quiet kindness was always a joy (nonetheless I remember a time or two where she got the upperhand in an argument with Lou). Regardless of how cloudy the day, and in many ways, your home on School st was a pleasant reprieve from the everyday, not the least of which was your sister's soft spoken, gentle and enigmatic presence. (and Audrey's rice krispy treats).

With the Warmest of Memories
My Deepest Sympathy,
Andrew Grace

Good memories of MJ and all the Hoffmans at the MHC. Very sorry for your loss.

Lou, Jane and Audrey...It seems like yesterday when your Mom left us too soon, and then your Dad in 2010. And now MJ passes way too young. As you probably know from Allana, I live and work in Las Vegas for the past 15 years. I won't be able to make the wake, but I extend my condolences to all of you.
