Sympathies message

  1. My deepest condolences to the Finisdore family. Joe and Betty were patients of mine for decades and dear friends as well. I have the fondest memories of all of the members of the Finisdore family. I proudly display Joe’s magnificent sculpture “The Nantucket Widow” in the entry to my home that I retired to on Cape Cod 15 years ago. Joe was just a wonderful, friendly, kind , upbeat man with so many talents. I fondly remember Betty bringing cookies to my staff every Christmas season. It was a life well lived and they were both loved by all. I am reminded of his talent, friendship and kindness every time I enter my home and view his magnificent piece of art. Dr. Mark Feldman
