Dear Griffin family,

I fondly recall going to your house at Halloween as a child. I was visiting my Aunt Mary Lou and Uncle Richard who lived across the way. As an adult, I ventured into your neighborhood with my own girls for Halloween. It was a couple of years back I saw your mother on Halloween night and she spoke fondly of my mom who had passed in 2015. She asked us in to her foyer and let my girls pick what they wanted from the bowl. Your mother was very sweet with a kind heart. May she rest in peace and my deepest sympathies.

To the Griffin Family - I am so deeply sorry for the loss of your Mom (Aunty Cathy to me). She was such a lovely lady and is now at peace and back with her main squeeze Dennis. May you all find comfort in knowing that she made an impact on so many lives. Rest in Peace Cathy. I will never forget our conversations and her wisdom. Such a lovely lady. Much love!
