Thoughts and prayers are with you. You were very blessed to have such a wonderful Mother for such a long time. I would love to hear some stories sometime. I was good friends with Father Burnett at St. Patrick's at the lake. Great man.

I am so sorry to learn of your mom's passing. Having lost my own moter just this past December I have some idea of what you may be going through. I do remember your mom taking good care of us wheneve we came to your house while at Rockhurst and her great smile. I am sorry that Mary and I will not be able to attend her services on Monday as we are in Florida awaiting guests who are coming to stay with us. We need to get together again before our reunion so let's make it happen.
