Frank, so sorry to hear about your wife's passing. I recognized the name and wanted to send my condolences. Don't know if you remember me, but I worked at St. Mary's, too. Retired now, but still remember a lot of the people there fondly. Prayers for you and your family.

Riley Family,

There are too many memories to choose just one but our relationship is easier to share. Toma made me feel like family. There was an open invitation to drop by for a visit, to share a meal, catch up on our lives, to laugh, joke or tease. Our visits were always comfortable and full of love.

We laughed that the pillow goes UNDER Frank's head when he complains a little too much about having a cold. Why nap time cannot be interrupted - sure it is just a time to rest...

Toma, you will be missed greatly by family, those of blood and those of inclusion. Rest peacefully lady, I love you!
