My wife and I were privileged to offer her holy communion twice a month at Sarah Frye, whenever she was able to receive. Happy and friendly lady she was. To you chick, and to the rest of the family, our deepest sympathy. May she rest in the loving and peaceful arms of the Lord. Rene & Lorraine Desrochers.

Annette, I was sorry to read about your mom's passing this morning. Seems she had a full and wonderful life with a wonderful supportive family. I am still living in Cherry Hill, NJ but my thoughts are with you and your family during this difficult time. May she rest in peace in God's Beautiful Heaven.

God Bless.
