When Marie Reilly and Anthony McHugh met there was high hope of a long and loving life together, the loving was there but long lived was not to be. Anthony left this world when his children were still young. He left behind a dedicated, courageous and fearless mother for his five children: Edward, Phillip, John, Anthony and last, but by far not the least, Maryann Patricia.
