God Bless all of you during this difficult time. It is so difficult to lose a parent or anyone for that matter. Sharon, I'm so sorry for your loss. I know your mom will be missed by all of you. Knowing she passed peacefully should give you some comfort. I'm praying for all your siblings and hope you all have peace knowing she is in Heaven now.

Love, Janet (Hall) Altadonna

Although a few years older than I, our families shared the great Denver Court neighborhood of Galveston. The McDonoughs --- every last one of them -- were members of the families who made the city great. Her brother Moore and I were a few years apart in age.

I am so sorry to learn that Nancy has passed away. She was a social power house who always kept her family and her faith within her inner spirit.
