I was so sorry to hear of your dear Mom's passing. I always admired Aunt Tessie's devotion to her family and, especially, to her Faith. She was as kind and caring as she was intelligent, a positive role model to all of us.
May God bless and console you. You are in my prayers.

To the Carmody family;
I am sorry to hear of the passing of Aunt Tessie. I have fond memories of visiting the house in EH. She and Uncle Jack were amazingly good and faithful people. Thank you for sharing the photo album. Although separated by time and miles, I am proud to call you family.
John Walcek, Carver, Ma.

In my own name and on behalf of my sister, Brenda, I extend our condolences and prayers to the Carmody Family on the death of their mother, Teresa. We were neighbors on Hanmer Street and fellow parishioners at St. Rose Church in East Hartford many years ago when we were children. I especially remember Father Steve and the late John.
May Teresa rest in peace! I have celebrated Mass for her eternal repose. May our gracious God bless and comfort all of you, her family, who will miss her.
Father Bob Levens, S.J.
