I was sorry to hear about the passing of your mother Lillian. I am one of her neighbors who would see her out when I was taking my walks. Always enjoyed talking with her and can remember her name since it was my father's mother also.

I remember your mother when I was at Mass on Saturday and also lit a candle for her.

Rest in Peace Lillian
