Hello Michelle, my sincerest sympathies on the passing of your mom. I remember her well, and some of these older photos bring back memories of time spent at your house on Beal Street. Is that a photo of Mary's wedding? I attended it with you, and we snuck away to smoke cigarillos and have a taste of beer...shocking! I am in touch with Mary (Cummins) Lentz and she sends her sympathies as well.

To Margaret, her brothers and sisters, and family. I only knew your mother through conversations with Margaret over the years and feel your grief. Each of you have special memories of a wonderful woman that will help you through the next few days, weeks, months, and years. You also have each other to provide comfort and support as you cope with your loss. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Myself I'm very sad that grandma is leaving us...but I can't help but smile knowing that shes in Heaven with grandpa and shes young again.
If there was ever a soul ready to cross the gates of heaven it was her...ill miss her but ill rejoice with all my heart...Grandma is in Heaven...if any soul lived for him it was her...keep grandpa in line and keep smiling on us.
I love you grandma...I can't wait to see you, grandpa and Jesus.
