Phyllis and Delores, I am so very sorry to hear of your dear mother’s passing. She was always so kind and always had the time or would make the time to visit with me. It would be about old times(chicken dinners our Mom’s preparedat St Pat’s ) or helping plan someone’s funeral at Skradski’s. May she reap the rewards eternally with the Dear Lord, as she so deserves.

Sorry for your loss prayers for all. I remember spending many hours in your house when Delores and I were in grade school at St. Patrick's. In later years she was always kind and spoke when I saw here at mass when I attended with Mom. Mom always spoke of her when they would talk at mass. She will be truly missed by everyone, keep the good times and memories close in you heart.

Prayers, Myra
