I wish I had a photo. When I was a Brownie Girl Scout, we visited the set of BoomTown duringRead More production. I remember being in my brown uniform and white gloves sitting in the audience. They had all the kids walk by the camera and wave at a red balloon and smile so that we could all be on camera. Great show. RIP Rex Trailer.

When our little friend Bridgette passed away about a year ago, I'm not sure who was more devastated,Read More her family or Cheerio. I had to smile when I saw the Life Savers he'd placed with her- just like he'd shared with her at 7:00 mass on Sunday mornings. I pray that they're now sharing Life Savers in Heaven and watching over all of us! You were one of the kindest, most giving person we were ever blessed to know, my friend!

Cheerio was more than just a bus driver or photographer to many of us at WA; he was a friend.Read More Whether we won or lost, he would have those special mint cookies of his for the long bus rides home. He would toss a life saver to me when I was doing homework in the stands, then ask me about what was new, and if I was enjoying school & my classes. Cheerio knew just how to bring a smile to everyone's face - all he had to do was grin, and even on the worst of days, he'd brighten my day. I was always happy to see him in church too, smiling as he walked between pews. I remember at Bridgette's wake, Cheerio was standing in the back of the church with tissues, mints, and a big hug for everyone who walked in; he and I exchanged our favorite memories of Bridgette, and Cheerio's smile had the same effect then: he made me smile at happy memories of Bridgette even when in mourning. He will surely be missed. At school events, I still expect to see him, camera around his neck, grinning and snapping pictures. Rest in peace, I miss you already.

Cheerio was above all a gentleman. He connected with children, young adults and "older"Read More adults as well. His smile and kindness will be missed but remembered for a long time. My prayers go out to his family- all of Westford!

I met Cherrio on a field trip, as I am teacher at Blanchard. As always he had his camera ready. IRead More noticed that his camera strap said "Wang". I asked him if he had ever worked at Wang as my dad started with Dr. Wang when he was forming the company. Cherrio asked me my last name, and before I could say my first name, he said, "Your're Elizabeth Benstead.....Aubrey's daughter?". Imagine my surprise !!! Come to find out, Cherrio and my dad were one of the first 35 - 40 people to be hired by Dr. Wang (as managers). From that day, Cherrio and I became fast friends. Every time Cheerio would read or hear about me and Blanchard's Student Council, he would make a point to find me at school and give me a hug and tell me how proud my dad would be if he were still with us. CHEERIO YOU WILL BE GREATLY MISSED !! Your infectious smile and laugh could turn any "frown upside down". You are now laughing, smiling with the angels in heaven. God Bless.

It's very sad to hear the news of Vic's passing. I first met him as a bus driver during myRead More childhood 20 years ago. Over the years, I had the pleasure of running into him at many community events and WA games. He was always there to capture and share so many great moments for the people of Westford. His warm spirit and presence will be greatly missed in our town.
