  1. Cathy, David, Richard and Carol,

    My condolences on the passing of your mother. She was a wonderful person and old Second Street next door neighbor. May the Lord’s mercy be with you all.

  2. Richard, Cathy, David & Carol… Please accept my sincere sympathy for the loss of your mother. We were neighbors and friends for many years, and I remember babysitting you guys when you were little kids. She was always in my nightly prayers and, she held (and holds) a special place in my heart. May God’s blessings be upon all of you.
