"When I saw my old neighbor Mrs. Cassidy the other day, she started crying. I think just the thought of seeing someone she knew...She and her husband are living in Newton, but it's not in this area, and she's lost. At Newton Corner, if things weren't going well for her, she'd tap on the pipes, and I'd come up and talk with her.
"Now I heard the expression the politicians were using, that people wanted to stay in the buildings for 'sentimental' reasons, but it's much more than that. It's their roots. Mr Cassidy is Newton Corner. He grew up here, he worked here all his life, yet he's not here today."
